    Pros

    Some good benefits and work experience. They offer 20℅ discount for office employees.

    Cons

    Management does not seem to work well together and always want to play the blame game.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at what's working and what is not. Outsourcing current jobs leads to poor work effectiveness and also pushing good employees to start looking elsewhere.
