    Pros

    Salary was satisfactory, but not worth the headache.

    Cons

    After returning from maternity leave, I was laid off. This company functions without a heart and treats employees like factory workers.

    Advice to Management

    It functions with childlike management that don't appear to understand process. This company needs to get a few adults in the mix.
