    Pros

    The place remind me of home, it is clean friendly, and it has air conditioning. If you like cherry pie and cherry coke with cherry cough syrup, then stop on by

    Cons

    There wasn't any tea, only cherry coke and cherry cough syrup were provided. The worst part though, was the fact that there were not any bathrooms in the office, so we all had to use catheters when trying to take care of "business".

    Advice to Management

    add bathrooms

    Pros

    Very little pros They treat employees like garbage and the funny thing they think they are really smart and good at what they do. You have to watch your back at all times.

    Cons

    Place is a real dump full of low quality human beings. I would be very careful working there. Some of the dirtiest people in the business from the top down. A real bucket shop. That is not a joke

    Advice to Management

    The management would remind you of the boiler rooms from years ago. Not much different. Their style is to uses as many people as they can along the way, not given a though to if they hurt them finial or any other way.. Real low life’s
