    Pros

    Flexible work hours and nice staff. The environment is very friendly to new hires. Starting pay was decent.

    Cons

    Very aged company. Felt awkward as a younger adult coming in to the work force working with exclusively 50+ employees. There are politics within the office which is discouraging.
