    Pros

    Mike - Victor - Albert

    These guys are 1 unit and know how to pick talent and grow a team. They are EXTREMELY ethical and the definition of servant leadership.

    I’m a new hire with a lot of experience however I am still coachable and willing to learn. Victor and my direct supervisor as been absolutely amazing with how they put training and real life situation in front of you. They establish foundation and are excited to see you thrive.

    Cons

    Light on staffing but these guys know how to make the adjustments needed.

    Advice to Management
