    Pay is OK, workload is too much and management doesn't do much

    Pros

    The compensation is OK, It's not horrible for a mid-level office job.

    Cons

    VPs and management make WAY too much money and I don't know how they can sleep at night knowing the people who do the real work are paid minimum wage. The company does not seem to be doing well and yet the Executives won't budge on THEIR salaries. Working conditions are not great either. I did a lot of work on nights and weekends and was paid a below average salary.
