    Benefits, charity of your choice they donate to, casual atmosphere. The campus here in RL are great and close to home.

    Hard to get on FT as a contractor. Your foot is in the door, but they truly hire from within first.

    Pros

    Great environment, and amazing community culture. I definitely recommend. It would be a great decision to work here. Really nice benefits and such.

    Cons

    The company has a tendency at times to engage in a manner that results in such a state in which the matter of affairs as they continue to develop due is in a way that is extra conservative and takes a long time to get anything done.
