    Great work life balance. Medical benefits are not bad. willing to train newer people fresh out of college.

    Cons

    Compensation is under state average, Work is project/contract based meaning it is possible to go through times of no work (Benched). no match on the 401K

    Advice to Management

    Make the 401k match, try to keep up with the state average for salaries.
