ProsFast Growing Company, Great job for High School Kids

ConsVery one sided...It's all about making money. Team members work very hard and are not valued. A lot of favoritism goes on within top leadership!

Advice to Senior ManagementInspect what you expect. Playing favoritism will hurt you. Pay your team members for all hours worked!!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
