    Pros

    Slackers are able to prosper here; Managers only care about appearance of "good work" not the actual production of it.

    Cons

    Double standards, often fail to deliver promises to employees and customers, very heavily oriented towards sales, gender biased, management indirectly fosters mistrust within the ranks by allowing rumor mill to deliver information (true and speculated), management enjoys the yes-men, rewards those who take credit for the work of others, and steps on the actual productive workers on the front line

    Pros

    Freedom- If you have a doctors appointment or just need a day off, your managers will work with you. They are pretty flexible with your hours, so you have a lot of freedom. The company does provide decent benefits to those who are full-time, and a great 401K opportunity.

    Cons

    Not enough work to keep you busy. No room for advancement. Not enough pay.
