    Pros

    the work environment is awesome. Work hard and do what your supposed to and you wont be micromanaged. Everyone is really a big family here. We do lots of HH and get togethers outside of the office which is always fun. Management has a lot of great personalities.

    Cons

    Sometimes it seems like there is High-School drama. If your not in the right clique, you might not be progressing as fast as you like. In some instances it feels like you have to play the game to gain certain opportunities or promotions and I am not a big fan of that. I let my performance provide my value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't beat around the bush, be straightforward and honest with everything. Acknowledge everyone's hard work and accomplishments, not just the ones who toot their own horn.
