Workplace is good and well ventilated

Company is very supportive to the workers. The management is looking after the workers. The communication between the workers and the management is well planned. It is so good to work this company because there is no decrimination they also avoid bullying, so the workers are working as one and has teamwork. Abuot the salary they give as upto date on weekly basis.

Management change was the end of a great company

Was a great company to work for until recent management changes and what seems to have become a culture of being just a number instead of a valued team member.


Great team onsite


Management needs to value their long term employees more
