    Pros

    Customer is priority one. The company has a "Spirit of Openness". New ideas and processes are welcomed. Support from upper management is exceptional.

    Cons

    Training and development sometimes falls on your shoulders. This is your responsibility you need to take the initiative for your own development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support staff roles are a little lean in the company. Would be nice to add head count to these roles.
