    Pros

    Salary and Benifits Easy job. Get to trade and gain experience.

    Cons

    Not a culture work environment that accepts women. no one wants to be one phone 8 hours a day. It gets old fast. Management will protect evil men and throw you over if you complain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't treat women poorly
