Field Service Consultant (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXAugust 20, 2018
I learned a lot, and the team I primarily worked with were amazing. Communication can be better, especially since I worked with three different regions. Other than that, it was a great environment to grow professionally, and everyone was so helpful, even with silly questions!

Endless Meetings

Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Alpharetta, GAAugust 15, 2018
The resources that moved down from NY City thought the ruled everything. They would leave work early and not care too much about you - but cared about themselves. Some managers were ok. Most were not.
