    Pros

    Worked with some very nice people
    Flexible hours helped me balance work, life, and school
    Company has customers from many industries

    Cons

    Not much investment/room for growth
    Low pay
    Incompetent manager

    Advice to Management

    Our team wanted to do a good job but budget constraints made us feel like our hands were tied.
    New boss didn't know how to lead. He would micro-manage, and become hostile, defensive, and passive aggressive when confronted or when his decisions were questioned. We felt like his grunts and never felt assured that he would back us up. A couple of well-respected coworkers left because of him.
