      Great company

      Oct 21, 2015 - Product Line Manager in Salt Lake City, UT
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The work environment in the Salt Lake City location is collegial and positive. Even when the stress level is high, there is a real sense of teamwork as challenges are met and solutions are sought. The compensation is fair and other benefits are quite good.

      Cons

      A new upper management team took the helm about a year ago and there have been external/market challenges in 2015. I'm confident the hard lessons learned will bear fruit in the future.
