    Pros

    Nice pay, flexible schedule. Many events in foyer, with freebies from time to time. Information Technology Dept. is very responsive, replaced equipment as needed. 24/7 Security. 24/7 Fitness Center, with variety of classes.

    Cons

    Staff employees resent contractors, in shared environment. Contractors are not eligible for any company perks. Lack of instruction. Lack of discipline. Felt like spinning wheels most of the time. Difficult to find parking during regular business hours. VERY unhealthy cafeteria food, despite marketing of healthful options.

    Advice to Management

    Management was kind, easygoing, and understanding, but rarely communicated with associates.
