    Pros

    It was a very team oriented company, helpful during and after the new learning curve time. They offered a wonderful training program.

    Cons

    Other than the company being bought out, I can't say anything negative, or downsides to the Company. They were great. They Company, and the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was just as great in helping they employees and staff, recognizing and praising them for jobs well done.
