    Pros

    If you do what you are supposed to do for the most part they leave you alone & let you do your job

    Cons

    No cons. I really didn't have any problems while I was employed there

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was very approachable. Mr. Bryan seemed to be able to call everyone by name & I really appreciated that.

    Pros

    Company is still profitable. Has money to reinvest Depending on the division you work for there are lots of really smart and talented people working here. Great Management team. Lots of change

    Cons

    Declining business model Low compensation Very, very, very corporate. Think "Office Space".

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring the good people, and start clearing out the dead wood in your local properties.
