ProsYou get to work with senior staff and most of your project are usually done by your co-workers. By this I mean that its great some you get to work on some real world projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think it would be better to increase either housing allowance or hourly wage

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
