productive and fun work place.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Vernal, UTOctober 16, 2015
In a typical day at work I would answer phones, take messages, and give them to the appropriate person. Gather the collected data and enter it into spread sheets, complete work orders, sort mail, and file paper work. I had awesome co workers that were not only fun to work with; they were also team players. The hardest part of the job would have to be the deadlines and the amount of information needed to be covered by said deadline. It was a fun work place with supportive management. Not all about the numbers but how you personally grow and develop. A decent amount of red tape and politics, but this is expected of a big company.
Pros
amazing co workers, health care, 401k
Cons
unorganization

JIB Accountant (Former Employee) –  Denver, COAugust 23, 2013
Excellent company to work for....
Professional environment conducive to learning
Progressed from general JIB accountant to 1099MISC tax reporting and learned tax rules and regulations for reporting
Management was consistent and fair (until new supervisor in last three months of employment)
Co-workers were excellent - felt each employee well qualified for job and given opportunity to learn
Hardest part of job was new supervisor - very much a micro-manager
most enjoyable part of job was the day to day stability and the opportunity to learn new things
Pros
great benefits, excellent environment
Cons
parking not provided
