    Pros

    Great team of staff. In Manhattan and close to highways and reliable public transportation.

    Cons

    Low pay. The full time work week is 37.5 hours and not 40. No paid lunches, no vision plan, cheap dental plans. Vacation is limited and no Union. There is a lot of "hype" associated with working here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to organize better to get more staff.
