strong team-work culture
Written by Senior Accounts Payable Associate (Former Employee) from Santa Clara, CA on February 11, 2020
Through out my years working in Accounting, this is the only company that has a very strong team-work culture. I learned a lot from my team-mates. The management is supportive to the regular employees ONLY. If you are a contractor, you're invisible to them and they don't acknowledge your hard work.
