    Pros

    I love their flexibility and the way they praise my work. Whether it's a small task or big.

    Cons

    They have ridiculous hours during the holidays that you are forced to work. The pressure you get to get credit, whether they got approved or not; it still counts for us, is annoying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be around to help.
