    Pros

    It is a good place to get your foot in the door, I didn't feel it was a place to make a career, just a stepping stone

    Cons

    There was no growth opportunities. There were many people there at the time I was that felt this way. As many times as I talked with my manager about being given more work, I was just yes-ed. I was there for 2 years and was still doing the same thing as day one. My department went through 5 people within a year, and all these people left for other jobs.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to take more interest in the employees that really want to learn and grow with the company, I was upset that as many times as I said I wanted to advance and learn I was never taken up on this.
