    Pros

    Short work hours compared to rest of industry

    Cons

    Joke of a staff. If you are lazy and don’t want to work hard and make out just fine then this place is for you. Most of the front office would get laughed at by BB yet they actually think they are special. No talent here pretty much a place to build a resume or to end retire at. Nothing more to be said here.
