    Pros

    Free lunch, good medical, casual attire

    Cons

    The policy changes on daily basis, never in writing. You are micro-managed to death with your 'worthiness' based on numbers that don't reflect the things most employers desire. Management constantly berates you to the point you are unable to focus on job. Constantly dealing with management. Insufficient training - not what is promised. 70% of the employees constantly job hunting due to being miserable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give sufficient training to be able to effectively deal with customers. Daily and weekly stats are not necessary - limit it. Management needs to make more effort to not berate to the point you dread going to work. Realize the high stress involved with the job and reduce "sweat shop" mentality.
