Pros

The people are generally awesome. The few idiots we had were fired quickly. There is room for promotion if you are a hard worker.

Cons

Long hours (7am-5pm). The pay was so low, I had to move on. I couldn't afford to buy a house.

Advice to Management

Please start paying your people a salary that they can live off of. You're losing talented people!
