    Pros

    Great work environment, great on the job learning opportunities.

    Cons

    No vacation time or sick time, everything is combined into PTO which is capped at 40 hours per week, even if you work over that amount and lose it if you don't lose it policy once you reach 16 days. Business season has you working LONG hours, this industry needs to be staffed, so compensate employees to make them want to stay.
