      Pros

      I worked with a great team of creatives, marketing managers, and sales reps to manager all print needs for 4 brands. Even though I was technically part of "Shared Services" I was always treated with respect and as part of each team by my colleagues. It was a fun place, lots of employee interaction, casual environment but everyone worked hard to do their part.

      Cons

      I don't know how their current situation is working out, or how they're organized. They were bought by Boardriders and the decision was made to phase me out.
