    There’s no place I’d rather be!

    Mar 23, 2022 - Anonymous Employee in Cary, NC

    Pros

    As a mother I feel without any hesitation that I can prioritize my family first. Throughout my tenure, (and the pandemic), I’ve been able to pivot when needed, and put the health and well-being of myself and family at the top of the list. As a woman, I feel my voice is heard and I’ve been given tremendous opportunity to succeed, advance and also foster additional interests outside of work. There is a general sense of care of the employees from the top down that resonates with me and I think this approach positively impacts performance.

    Cons

    I can’t think of any. I know many of us miss the luxuries of campus, however work from home has its benefits as well. Leadership has been supportive and accommodating to allow employees to choose what works best for them.

    Milage

    Pros

    I had a major tragic life change and sas was there for me and gave me the time I needed off. Since coming back they have worked with me and are very supportive and understandable.

    Cons

    They don't give you enough money for milage, 26 a mile. 20.00 a day per deim 26 cent a milage doesn't get you much back for gas. 20.00 a day for food isn't enough with the prices of food these.

    Not utopia but still a great company

    Dec 23, 2022 - Senior Test Engineer 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The company does really believe in work/life balance and tries to help employees achieve that. Individual managers do make a difference though - some are better than others - but the culture as a whole is supportive of that.

    Cons

    There is not enough management training - some managers just really should not be managers.
