“The great thing about Akima, is no day is the same,” says LeRoy Hinton, general manager of Akima subsidiary Akima-Intra Data.
The commitment from leadership and the company’s culture as a whole radiates through its employees, where they say professional development and training is key to their success.
“I think it is the plethora of training and development opportunities that Akima offers that make us a uniquely ideal place to work and grow,” says Steve Peters, a senior program manager. From on-site (when it is safe) and virtual training to tuition reimbursement, Akima offers robust options for employee development.
