    Pros

    free food throughout the day
    good benefits (med. insurance etc.)
    smart coworkers
    learning opportunities

    Cons

    very long hours
    be prepared to work 12 hrs a day, and over the weekend, and at night
    no life outside the company
    no breaks - is it legal?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and don't make people work 12 hrs a day
