    Pros

    Work-life balance is great, paid hour of lunch, PTO is good, health is decent.

    Cons

    Same employees for years so they get comfortable and leave no room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Update your reporting devices and consider raising salaries. Unfortunately turnover is so high because Atlas pays 20-40% under market value so many young professionals come to get experience and leave.
