    Pros

    Very energetic work environment, but really that's about it. You can learn a lot about the business and the hard work it takes, but then again you can learn that at much better places that won't screw you over in the end.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Bottom line this is definitely not a place you should ever work at or with either of the Belisis brothers. George has a decent heart, or at least he used to. But Tommy will stab you in the back the moment he feels like it for the littlest thing possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Greed kills, and as you apparently took nothing from your own speeches in the morning. The short route to success is the quick route to disaster.
