PROJECT MANAGER CO-OP (Current Employee), Plano, TXJanuary 26, 2014
It's a pretty chill environment, i enjoyed working here. People are friendly and work oriented. A typical day includes coming to work and staying till your work is done. Management is pretty lax about when you come in, as long as you get your work done. I enjoyed my internship

Back Haul Coordinator (Current Employee), Columbia, MDJanuary 17, 2014
Pros: good place to work, while it is lasting, great health insurance
Cons: thought the job was going to last a lot longer
met with a lot of good contractors, made sure work was getting completed in a timely manner, a lot more about computers I was basically always on the construction end up until the last few years, not only did I work with a good management team, I am better at managing people and jobs, worked with a great bunch of co-workers,
Computers I was never used – more... to using them but I have come to get a lot better with them ( I am used to a #2 pencil), meeting new people, places, looking at the job from a different view than what I am used to, just talking with people – less

Remote Work Experience
Financial Controls Manager - Sprint Vision Project (Current Employee), Plano, TXJanuary 9, 2014
Pros: balance work and family
Cons: lack opportunity of advancement
This is my first 100% remote work experience. The Financial Controls team consists of 22 people working out of their own home throughout the nation. It requires high self discipline and responsibility to get the job done. Each person logs into shared drive in the morning and run various financial reports, then go through the process with Accounting – more... team to pay the vendor.

Our team has weekly meeting and use Office Communicator to correspond with each other. The hardest part of the job is actually to take a break! I find myself working more than the regular shift hours just so that I can proof to my boss that I'm working hard! I really appreciate the convenience of this job because it has given me an opportunity to attend to my children more than other jobs. – less

Too many layers but it is getting better
Test Engineer (Current Employee), Longview, TXDecember 1, 2013
The hardest part of my job was getting the direction or knowing which direction I was supposed to go. Upper management was always changing. They have reduced my levels of accountability from 9 to 5 which has simplified many things. However, they are trying to save money and the first to go is always lower seniority people.
