Pros

Location in downtown Fort Lauderdale
Half day off day before a holiday

Cons

Top management flies around in corporate jets and stay at over priced hotels while everyone else is cost-cut to extreme. Middle managers have to fight over a $5 variance in hotel bills.
Hourly people have to clock in and out. This is a corporation, not a factory.
Salaries are uneven. You can work hard and get the same lousy 1 to 3% raise or no raise at all every year.

Advice to Management

Get out of your bubble and try to work within the confines you expect the rest of us to work. Share the wealth a little more.
