    Pros

    Great team work and cool place. Recomend as a started job.

    Cons

    Very micromanaged and low paying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Much has changed since I worked there so I wouldn't know where to start. Hopefully it's improved. CEO (General Manager) listed is no longer there.
