We are a small, locally-owned company with a second location in Baltimore, and as a small company we are able to develop, plan and execute strategies very quickly and without the frustrating bureaucracy common in larger organizations. Coordination between the two location's management teams helps drive the goal setting, compliance checks, and company strategy.
At the end of the day, we like to work hard but have fun, and we like to do it with like-minded, positive, and ambitious teammates.
