Being from Omaha, I knew that I was joining a large company with a good reputation. When I started working here, I found there were lots of opportunities to advance and move around. They really do a good job of letting people experience different roles and departments. My job is generally project based, and I enjoy being able to give a recommendation and fix a process or make it more effective. That's how I know I've made a difference. If you ask me what I'm able to build...I'd say improvements, and I love that about my job.
