    Pros

    Such a wondeful company to work for. As an intern, I have gained so much experience from working with my co-parts. Everyone is very friendly and it is just an all around great work environment.

    Cons

    Not enough open HR positions. Would have been an ideal situation to accept a ful time position right after I completed my internship.

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, and great pay for the work.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little favorable of some people, coming from the office though.

    Advice to Management

    Let's be a little more lenient with points, especially when it is due to weather and out of someone's hands. You're losing a lot of great workers due to this.

    Pros

    They care about their employees, and my experience there was wonderful. The pay we received for the work we did seemed more than fair, and if I had the opportunity, I would return there.

    Cons

    Very strict attendance policies. long hours and possibility of working lots of weekends....so if you like overtime, this would be considered a pro.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to take a second look at their sick day policies, and medical leave policies. being a non union company and an at-will employer, they need to offer up something to give employees a better sense of job security in the event of personal injury or illness
