    Pros

    Can set own hours, insurance okay, great connection with families.

    Cons

    Too much emphasis on hours, poor pay...too low for the work, local management is out of touch with reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide cell phones, laptops, etc. to employees. Treat employees like an adult. Provide the support that is preached.
