Company reviews
"Excellent Corporate Culture"
Current EmployeeVirtualization Engineer
The management is very supportive of the employees, and provide sufficient tools for the employees to succeed including training. There are ample opportunities for the individual to Excel within the company and provide mentoring support which I found very helpful.

"very robotic workplace"
Former EmployeeEngineer
Managers disagreed with their decision, and I paid the price. I do not recommend anyone looking for more than a job to pay bills. It is a repetitive design job, and the engineer can't sign it because they are all contractors.

"It really depends on your role and the contract you work on"
Former EmployeeSoftware Engineer
When I first came on as a Junior Dev, I was excited because it was my first job out of college so I was just eager to get my hands on anything. My role required me to have knowledge of C++ and Java in order to support the "development" of a legacy application that has been around for quite sometime. About three months into my Junior Software Developer role, I actually found what I was doing to be interesting, but then, the work became repetitive and I slowly started to realize that there was no actual software development; just minor bug fixes here and there that truthfully only needed one dev to work them (most of the time). So, a lot of the time, We "Developers" had to make ourselves busy with "busy work" which had nothing to do with being a Software Dev (IMO). Your experience with this company IMO will be which contract you are placed on, and what is asked of you. My advice, ask very probing questions about what your specific day-to-day duties will be; sometimes job descriptions stretch the truth...

"Good first job but wouldn’t stay long "
Former EmployeeAccountant
They hired me out of college with no experience so I was grateful for that. But the culture was bad, they worked us so hard everyone was always exhausted, a supervisor tried to get me fired over a 7 cent error, and some managers had no accounting background and it showed. I was definitely ready to leave after two years for better pay, better work environment and more appreciation from my company.
