Winter is coming
Mac IT Consultant (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 6, 2015
Working for this company has been the first time I have been employed in an enterprise environment. Coming from the hustle and bustle of performing Helpdesk support this was a welcomed change in pace. Assisting fellow employees is not as exhaustive as assisting customers. Great place to work even more impressive swag due to all the shows that HBO produces.
Pros
great environment, helpful atmosphere, low stress, game of thrones!
Cons
worked as a consultant so no healthcare, vacation pay or other benefits.
