    Pros

    Although I didn't work for this company that long, it seems as though they may pay their employees pretty decently.

    Cons

    I can't really give any cons because I didn't work with them that long after the purchased the company that I had been working for for 6 years. If they want you, they want you and if they don't, they don't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Past employees shouldn't be denied applying for positions within the company.
