    Pros

    This company has the best benefits I've seen. The pay scale is more than I was expecting. Get PTO on your 1st day and it is more than just a few days.

    Cons

    Working 6-7 days nearly every week of the year, holidays you shouldn't expect more than 1 weekday off even for Christmas.

    Advice to Management

    Business should not just be based on numbers. This company before it became SN cared more about the employee and they did not have to worry about numbers because everyone loved their job and still made the needed output without being pushed from management.
