-Managenent cares about youCons
-work ends at 5pm, but if you leave the office before 5:15pm, it is frowned upon (makes no sense to me, make work end at 5:15 then!)
-although the job isn't stressful, I barely have enough time to fit the gym, food shopping, and meal prep into my work week.
-if your manager doesn't like you, you're not going to enjoy this job.
