Pros

paid for travel
great experience for recent college grads
young employees
fun, exciting colleagues
exposure to a lot of people and opportunities
experience may depend on tour manager/teammates

Cons

travel can become tiresome
contracted work- no future job guarantee
I really do not have very many complaints, the pay was a bit low, but there were a lot of upsides to opportunity- including per diem, paid for laundry, and free travel/hotels rooms
no benefits/insurance

    Pros

    Great benefits and office culture. Exciting industry to be a part of. Great place for young professionals and recent graduates to start their career.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance or measure what it takes to earn a promotion which can become very frustrating over time. Other than that, it is a great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Employees need more guidance and encouragement regarding their career path within the company.


  2. Great corporate culture and people. Awesome first job experience
