    Pros

    *Fair starting pay for those just out of college who may not have went to HUGE universities. *Decent training program on-shore. Full pay while in school. *Nice managers.

    Cons

    *The travel team is terrible you have to jump through hoops to get a hotel or rental car renewed. Relocating is horrible. *Extremely disorganized company. *Even if you are hired for a position you may find you are pressured into a relocation before you every start working. *Relocation compensation is not very good compared to other companies. *Poor communication. You might have 6 different managers and none of them seem to be the right one to report to.

    Advice to Management

    *Answer questions openly and honestly, don't beat around the bush.
