    Great Company

    Sales (Former Employee)

    ProsI really enjoyed the inclusiveness I felt from day one. I immediately received a benefits package, and they were ready for me to start on my first day... little things like my Email, Corporate Card, etc were laid out and ready to go! Many companies let you start and it takes weeks to feel like they want you there!

    ConsWithin the office I worked in, my manager and I didn't see eye-to-eye. It wasn't a personal thing, and not even a fault on the manager... we just had different management styles.
