    Pros

    Training is good for my entry level
    Consensus-driven culture (generally a good thing), whereby every decision is taken by committee, can sometimes lead to numerous back-and-forths and long decision times
    Dramatic company growth in the past couple of years (putting lots of pressure on infrastructure though)

    Cons

    Lack of upward mobility, lack of personal growth, unclear, ill-defined career path. Some people in positions of power lack management skills
    Compensation and yearly raises are well below industry average
    Highly specialized roles with limited transferability
    Tedious work
    Turnover is high among junior employees.
    Very political
    Long hours

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere making it very comfortable to work for
    Coworkers are also very friendly making it easy to cover shifts for each other

    Cons

    Inconvenient hours although pretty flexible
    Dealing with irritated residents and family
    Management sometimes has difficulty expressing objectives or certain procedures to follow

    Advice to Management

    Pay for graveyard shifts could be improved, working overnight is very inconvenient and sometimes messes with sleep schedule
    Find better ways to provide incentives and recognition for those who put in significant amounts of effort to make sure shifts are covered
