    Pros

    This company definitely provides an opportunity for employees to grow as long you want to grow.

    Cons

    The pay scale can be slightly adjusted. Management some times looks at the smaller picture rather than the big picture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers, pay attention to those employees who want to grow and give them the resources to help themselves as well as the company.

    Pros

    Employees are diverse and great to work with. Get to meet people from all walks of life. Benefits pretty decent.

    Cons

    Favoritism, lack of opportunity to move up in certain departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of good employees do not get looked on because of favoritism so a lot of them get passed up for promotion.

    Pros

    Depends on department, you can find a great staff. Some of the managers are willing to help you, teach you and guide you to meet their goals. As a company you get great perks, have space to grow.

    Cons

    Even though they have space to grow, its very difficult to get a transfer. They announce that vacation is "important ans saves lives". You are only allowed to take them during low season, due that high season they will drained you till the very last drop of sweat. Not a job for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be excellent if you can provide more or better incentives to your employees.

    Pros

    This company is growing faster than ever and they will always promote from within.

    Cons

    No cons whatsoever. Don't always believe what you read in the news articles. David Siegel is by far one of the most brilliant people you could ever work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what we are doing. Success is at a peak with our representatives and other staff.
