    Pros

    Professional environment with good pay and manageable hours.comes with benefits that can turn into a career

    Cons

    Too many rules that contradict itself within its organization no excuses and you better not mess up even though the training is a lot to take in within week. Some of the people training you will forget to explain something then you will be blamed for their mistake. There is no leniency. Depending on the sight the have no remorse for mess ups

    Advice to Management

    Keep the professionalism up but be more understanding towards your employees
