    Pros

    PTO

    If you’re lucky, you might have 2 days off a week.

    Cons

    Asking to use PTO is forbidden.
    You’ll be let go before you can use it.
    No vacation or work-life balance.
    Rinse and repeat.
    If you’re male, you’re already fired.
    Outdated tech and policies.
    Online banking and related apps never work.
    These people like to eat and it shows.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t belittle your employees when none of you even know how to run the programs or systems. If you want people to sell products, offer products that are actually sellable. Too many chiefs and not enough Indians.
