If I've learned anything through my experience within this company. It is the chance to have been given responsibility over managing multiple projects/teams and how to handle ever changing situations. I was fortunate in working with many fine men and women throughout my years at this company. If I have any negative things to say about this company, it is simply to state that those that truly strive to make this company the best in the market, often times are overshadowed, or tasked with too much responsibility and low wages for the work involved. – less
