    There are a lot of opportunities. You have lot of room to move and grow to meet your own benefits. Overall great place to work.

    A big time commitment. If you are a student with a busy schedule you will have to learn how to manage your time very well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked very hard in my position and I felt the compensation was not adequate for my effort. Keep in mind that you want your employees to be happy.
