    Pros

    Amazing culture and benefits, the best coworkers I've ever had, people really try and work hard and the ones who don't, don't make it. It's refreshing, really. I can't tell you how many places I've worked where the slackers stayed for YEARS and the managers all knew it but they never did anything about it. Here, everyone is earning their place and you feel valued and appreciated for it, too. A company is only as good as its managers, and the management is world-class. They're trained to care about their people down to a personal level, and they're beyond generous when life circumstances come up. I'm really proud to work for a company that's so honest and "real." I come from retail where everyone is fake and you could never speak your mind. None of that would fly here. I've been here for 2 and a half years, and this is hands-down the best job I've ever had, especially in terms of work-life balance. Not to mention I've gotten more raises here than the place I worked at for 9 years, and I feel wayyy more valued here than I ever did there.

    Cons

    So, you're going to learn way more than you ever thought you would, including that you're probably not as good at things as you thought you were. But if you learn from your mistakes and keep working hard and getting results, you'll be fine. Unfortunately, we do have some turnover. But honestly thinking back, the people who were let go were always let go for a reason. Usually it's that they got lots of feedback to improve or change something and either couldn't or wouldn't do it. Or they were being ***holes to people. That will definitely not fly. But for those who make it, the retention rate is very high. And I think that says a lot more.
