"Many of the employees working there were just fired because they refused to sign a gagging contract disguised as a confidentiality and non disclosure agreement. I have heard they were not even given a termination letter but summarily discharged without a layoff package. Stay away!!"

"I have worked with this company for last eight and half years and Company is good and work environment was good. Recent past inexperience co-workers (full time employees) making environment unpleasant due to lake of technical and ethical skill. Management team need to change the view point toward CWs and manage team evenly including work load and achievements. Now days, environment and motivation are base on only relationship with management and ignoring tech skill, knowledge, achievements."
