    Great benefits and working environment. Hard work is rewarded and continued growth is encouraged in both personal and professional areas.


    Some company policies take a more traditional perspective on how a company should be run. This results in some dated dress code rules, business hours, etc.

    Interview Details

    I submitted a resume through the company's online system. I also had a professor send my resume to someone within the company (though not in the division I was hired into). Within a week or two of submitting my resume, I had a phone interview. A week or two after the phone interview I had an on-site interview. The on-site interview was a short presentation about myself, followed by Q&A. After this interview, I was offered a position the next day. I was treated very well through the whole process.
