An Insider's view of Connamara Systems
How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?
Connamara has adopted technology that really helps out the the work-life balance. If needed we can work from home. Although I like better in the office, at times I am needed at home. Having the Slack application on phone helps as well. We also have a nice gym here in the office building if I want to get away for a bit and work out.
