    Pros

    Great work environment. Offers a great work to personal life balance. Supervisory staff is very helpful, and so are the seasoned employees.

    Cons

    No cons, honestly. The company was very up front in their expectations for each role, and the training is phenomenal. Every day is a learning experience, but you never feel like you're doing it alone.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work. :)

    Pros

    Freedom and great pay. Fun workplace and room for advancement

    Cons

    No accountability. Managers need more lessons on how to hire better people.

    Advice to Management

    Crack down on the stagnant people that have been in the same position for years. The production that doesn't come out of them is costing the company money.
