    Pros

    Great place to work, very compliant, I enjoy the experience, lots of opportunities to progress

    Stay Compliant, follow procedures and don't get involved in gossiping, try to progress yourself by learning your job in every way or clients will avoid you

    Advice to Management

    Communication, Communication and more Communication, there is no such thing as a secret meeting, it gets out and turns to gossip, employees become defensive.
    Secondly, recognize the power and skills of your people, favoritism doesn't get the job done, you oversee the mistakes your friends make. These are just a few advice
