    Pros

    Proactive managers.
    Engaged and engaging ethical corporate officers.
    Strong, supportive HR.
    Intriguing work conditions.

    Cons

    Some of their customers can be raw and abrasive.
    Inconsistency in training staff.
    Contracts wax and wane, not a ding on the company but on the employment stability in this line of business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. If most companies operated this way, the economy wouldn't be in the wreck it's in. Wow, that sounded close to Rogers Star for president didn't it?
