    Decent Benefits, more than other companies offer, cafeteria in building. Most employees are pleasant and friendly. Staff is willing to help when needed.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Staff in the same department are allowed to work remote. The people in office Tavel more than the remote staff, not a fair situation. Management Seems to be Lacking common sense to the situation

    Advice to Management

    Offer fairness, move forward with our current times, offer a better work life balance which is proven to improve employee output. The same work can be done at home, such as with the Staff who already work from home.
