    Traditional, yet comfortable

    Pros

    Generally supportive work environment, good pay, lots of very smart co-workers.

    Cons

    Old school way of doing things in many respects, although there is a push to change at least some of these. Technical support takes weeks to get back to you sometimes. Much of the bureaucratic red tape that any large organization has.

    Pros

    Manager pays for lunch, you can earn up to $1000 a week, your independent, and you set your own hours.

    Cons

    Putting gas in your own vehicle, long hours, unpredictable pay, and commissions are based on how well you do.

    Managed by Children

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    There are absolutely NO positive reasons to work for this company! Poor pay, benefits, training, and advancement opportunities are some negative aspects of the company. Add to that, childish temper tantrums, emotional outbursts, and backstabbing from ALL levels of management.

    Cons

    The unstable emotions and behaviors of the management can follow you through your career. Remember, you may need their reference for another job or security clearance years later, and what they say will depend on their mood when they are asked. These managers are not professional in their behavior.

    Pros

    If you hungry for money do it. But you gonna be needing a doctor later. So is it worth it. I can only do 10 hours daily then my body shut down and this is all night work.

    Cons

    I'm being harass for not doing 12,13,14 hour nights. MANAGER JUST told me Friday they may have to let me go. Sons of guns. Run don't waste your time. Management SUCKS. SLEEP DEPRIVATION IS THE SAME AS A DUI.
