    Pros

    Decent Pay. There are no other pros at this time.

    Cons

    Lack of structure, corruption of management, fire and hire too easily. Favoritism showed to certain employees while other employees were given no advancement opportunities. They do not support employees, a complete lack of flexibility. Would rather punish a single mother for needing to leave work for an emergency than work with her to accomplish the job.

    Advice to Management

    Fire all of the management including the HR department and hire new to start over.
