Poor

ProsThe people in the company are relatively easy to work with and reasonable.

ConsNo training, No expectations, No one to tell you how things are done. Have to figure everything out by yourself. No recognition of good work, but anything bad is on your permanent record.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
