      Pros

      Great colleagues to work with and loyal. Very knowledgable teams.

      A few issues is that they under staff their department and do not compensate the employees they have.

      The employees are loyal, maybe too loyal to a fault. Do not take them for granted since once they leave all of their knowledge goes with them
