good experience
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great place to hone your skills and work with a diverse multicultural staff. (This is not the place for you if don't like skills and knowledge competencies from time to time while at work.)Often times understaffed, minimum opportunities for career growth. Salary is not competitive if you're not working in a specialized area.
