    Pros

    Great entry-level positions, lax management, able to create your own hours

    Cons

    Minimal promotion potential, wage, culture as a whole really struggled because of a very technical-minded environment, not much camaraderie.

    Advice to Management

    Manage Talent -- we got away with anything
