    Pros

    good place to meet a lot of high level people
    a lot of free meal if you are a journalist

    Cons

    pay very little
    never pay on time
    doesn't really treat employee as an long term asset to the company, only a cheap labor

    Advice to Management

    could be more professional, invest the money it earned back to the company rather than spend by the boss himself
