Company reviews
"It was hard to learn everything."
Former EmployeeSoftware Test Engineer
The work there was alright, everyone was super friendly and up front about your work. However, their training program wasn't very good, there are a lot of inside lingoes to learn before being able to fully help there.

"Great people to work with"
Former EmployeeQuality Assurance Tester
I really enjoyed working here. If you get the opportunity to move off the initial QA team, go for it. I learned a lot here, I got to learn and apply programming skills, work with databases, learn about the software development cycle and more. Management is always open to talking about how to best help you learn and succeed. Work culture: Laid back, can generally work at your own pace. It does take some getting used to understand some of the lingo, how to write good bug reports, how to find bugs, etc. But ask questions, do your research, and you should be fine. Plenty of people enjoyed playing basketball at lunch. Although, a lot of the interactions were via chats, even if the person were right next to you - but usually because most people put on some music to listen to while they work. Hardest part: It's QA, there will be times were finding bugs can be quite hard to find. During these times I'd spend time learning new skills like scripting and try them out. Most enjoyable part: Everyone is willing to help you out as long as you're willing to put in the work and effort.

"Great work environment and Intro to Development"
Former EmployeeQuality Assurance Tester
9-5 Usually testing the same software all day, until a new build is up and ready for testing. Learned how to use different software for bug tracking and other development tools. Was a great introduction to the development cycle of things Management was good, though I wish there was more focus on improving and helping then complaining. The work environment was probably the most enjoyable part, the workers there are all good spirited and know how to balance fun with work.

"Ok"
Current EmployeeInstructor
Management is good. Flexible time to finish the task. It took to much time to deal with tech issues. A typical day at work. Standard of government contractor.
