    Pros

    Hard work does get you promotions. You can become part of management without having a bachelors degree which is good for College Students.

    Cons

    The pay is HORRIBLE! While this is the perfect job for a college student looking for experience and some textbook money. It is NOT the perfect job for a college student with rent and bills to pay.

    Pros

    Very fast-paced environment. People are very focused on process improvement and efficiency. People are nice, friendly and helpful. It's not for everyone, but if you are looking for a role where you can come in and foster controlled change, it could be a good place for you. They are definitely open to new ways of doing things.

    Cons

    Certainly a work hard environment. People come in, get the job done and then go home. At lot of people have families, so there is lest time spent on chit chat and hanging out.

    Advice to Management

    The business transformation initiatives are key. If they are successful this summer, the sky is the limit for potential.
