ProsThey feed you very well when days are very busy, so you can work through your lunch. This company offers great benefits.

ConsNo room for growth with this company. Very high layoff rate. Very cutthroat. They expect you to work 14 hours days. Had to wait 6 months before receiving overtime pay.

Advice to Senior ManagementToo aggressive. No empathy for there employess. Very dishonest.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
