    I have been working at SGS full-time

    Pros

    People, freedom to learn, part of a winning team. The company does alot to make people feel like they belong to a team. They take everyone to the state fair, the whole lab goes to a rented out theater for a movie and pizza once a year, etc. We really come together as a team. You must be a team player to have fun and do a good work.

    Cons

    Work can be challenging during the busy season.

    Pros

    Anyone motivated and smart can find endless opportunities. You just have to be open minded and willing to take chances. Some roles provide an opportunity for travel.

    Cons

    Sometimes the decisions are reactionary instead of thinking long term. Travel can be rough on a young family.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize talent, allow for some risks, take advantage of the company's size in more creative ways.
