    Pros

    When things are going okay, it is a good place to work. Team atmosphere, coworkers are fun

    Cons

    No room for advancement. ABSOLUTELY NO loyalty to employees. When they are ready to get rid of you, you are called in for a meeting to catch you off guard, then your Bethel property taken, and you sent out the door with a swift kick. RUN!

    Quit using fear as a management tactic. Treat employees with respect.
