Heavy Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Prudhoe Bay, AKJanuary 27, 2016
Not the best person to offer high praise in this area. each person must learn from their own experiences . It's not like I have a lot of love for this company. It's the same as most company's . never trust in any 1 thing to much and there is no loyalty in any company only in it's people and not all people can be trusted.
Pros
many good people to work with
Cons
rather not say

Great Company-this location awful
n/a (Current Employee) –  Hillsboro, ORJanuary 23, 2016
I work at this location and it is awful. They just had a meeting about how poor the work conditions are. You are expected to put in 50 hrs a week. No break room, no bathrooms, no privacy, hot as heck in there.

Worst working conditions I have ever seen. The pay rate is good but not for this location, not worth it.
Pros
learning a great deal
Cons
work location - onsite

perfect in between job
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  San Jose, CADecember 7, 2015
don't get paid nearly as much as you need to survive in San Jose area.
Looked down upon if you don't do overtime.
They do provide benefits, not really appealing once you look at the fine print ( they don't cover much) and you still pay a lot out of pocket.
everyone starts off as a temp, than after 3 or so months you can get converted.
Will most likely work some holidays.
Recently trying to upgrade some programs in the system.
Dead end job, no room to improve on your personal growth within the company. IF you want to move up the ladder, look somewhere else. this is the company where you gain some skills and apply it to a different company.
However there is some ease knowing your job is pretty secure.
Cons
benefits are not as great as they appear

Moving all Shared Services jobs over to Poland and laying off US employees
Director of Accounting (Current Employee) –  Englewood, CONovember 5, 2015
Moving all Shared Services jobs over to Poland and laying off US employees.

This is a employee owned company and is struggling to keep their head above water so they are trying to make drastic changes in their overhead departments in order to try to salvage the company.

I was forced to lay off people in November of 2014 and they are going to have more layoffs in November of 2015.
