The company’s brand is recognized throughout the U.S. and abroad. The package includes attractive benefits, a competitive starting base salary (6 figures and bonus), flexible environment, and challenge (my first placement in 2000 is still with this company).If no interest by you for any reason, consider passing this along to a colleague who may be.
