    Pros

    Vacation time, holiday time and federal days off are great. For the most part, employees all get along with each other.

    Cons

    It is really obvious that management has there own favorite employees that they make exceptions for while other employees are written up or called in to the office for counseling sessions. The company does provide 5 days sick time pay but the rules that they have if you have an occurence is ridiculous. Management has staff meetings with employees going over the company rules and regulations. However, the "favorite" employees constantly break the rules and are not held accountable. For example, talking on the phone non-stop through the day with family members. Talking on their cell phone or text messaging throughout the day, unprofessional and disruptive.
