    Pros

    Great place to work. It is fast paced and high pressure. You must be adaptable to change. The people are professional and nice for the most part. Pay is decent.

    Cons

    Long hours. Located in the strip district. Parking stinks. Fast paced and high pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the lower level employees more. We are in the trenches and are in touch with what is really going on.
