    Pros

    The teams can be really nice depending on who you work for. A lot of dedicated people to an extent. This company is about to close doors in their HQ, and I don't see as many people jumping ship as I thought. Job is fairly easy, and have quite a bit of autonomy to get things done. With that you have pretty good work life balance.

    Cons

    With lots of autonomy, not much direction is given. Company goes by a learn by rote type deal. Someone is always cleaning up someone elses mess, and know if you come on you probably will be doing the same thing (so you have some job security if you can do that). This really is a job for fresh college grads since the pay is crap, benefits are crap, and raises non existent. No bonus structure payouts, and the possibility of your job being influenced by Conservative Politics. As a millenial, I will say I learned a ton, but staying in this company for more than a year make you untransferrable with regards to skillsets anywhere else. Also Executives and Corporate operations are separated, so any interaction with executive management will probably go unheard. Can't bring other fast food chains (even if they are cheaper cause you are trying to save money from your meager salary) to eat on premises or you get fired.

    Advice to Management

    None, you know what you are signing up for working for a conservative company. I mean the CEO is on Fox News all the time.
