  • "I love being my own boss. I hate the pay scale. I just wish there was a little more of it."

  • "I got to do work that I really enjoy, it was fun to come to work. I had projects lined up to do that would challenge me and be done for a good cause. We worked to develop UICDS and take part in earthquake simulations and the incident reporting software development; worked with vehicle safety technology and other things."
