    Pros

    Fun events, diversity of work, great environment to learn for recent grads.
    Lots of friendly people that help you along your learning path.

    Cons

    Low pay for what is expected of you.
    Chances of career advancement limited.
    Work/life balance is not good.
    Company spends on external vendor contractors to do upgrades instead of investing in their FT employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in human capital and don't just look at the bottom dollar costs. You save initially but in the long term it's stressful for FT employees to ramp up and costs lots more in OT and other expenses to keep things running.
