this company is a good place to work with the exception of the manager that I had it was her first time managing an employee, she was a micromanager and I do not thing that was not a good thing for me coming from the military and overseeing others. I enjoyed the work that I did.

Great company to work for, they have a pay scale available to all employees so you know the general range for each position. PTO is generous at starting at 3 weeks plus about 25 personal holiday hours and you move to 4 weeks at 4 years. 401k plan matches 100% up to 6% and is vested at start date.
