    Pros

    The majority of the employees were very friendly and easy to work with. The management was not too strict or overbearing. The work day generally consisted a 9-5 day with an hour lunch included.

    Cons

    The communication within the company was not always the best, and the conditions in the office workspace were not always ideal

    Advice to Management

    I was very pleased with management
