Pros

Nice training program, great follow up to help achieve superior customer service.

Cons

Company thinks little of retaining loyal employees. Tends to lay off perm workers and temp staff frequently to rehire later at a lessor rate. Horrible insurance package for the amount of money the company brings in. Insurance benefits are set for young people who never have to go to doctor and too expensive for those who do.

Advice to Management

Like many companies, corporate profit is more important than what original founder set company to be.

    Try and have computers set up with needed software before arrival.
