    Pros

    Great health benefits. I could work from home sometime. I did meet a few new people that were nice. That's all.

    Cons

    Corrupt. Dishonest. Unreliable. Stole from me... never repay relocation costs. System makes it almost impossible to turn in reimbursement. Called me to relocate to PHX yet did not have a job lined up for me. Scary.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat employees like cattle...
