    Benefits
    Potential for growth
    Colleagues are nice
    Great work experience

    Cons

    You work hard for your money
    You do much more than what's in your job description, and it doesn't come with a pay increase.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so that staff is not burnt out. Need better work life balance.

    Pros

    Great company with an amazing war chest of resources.

    Cons

    Manager was just a over ripened apple. He is trying to work a retirement plan into his mater plane. Just have to forgive his ego. They hire from outside no within.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to worker bees not the Queen.
