    Pros

    I don't have any just great benefits

    Cons

    This place is very clicky and absolutely zero directions. What you get hired for is not what you'll actually be doing. You'll be running so many directions one day and the next you'll nothing to do until another wave of fire. If you're thinking about advancement opportunity well good luck. I would not recommend this place to anyone if you're looking for advancement, good work-life environment.
