    Pros

    Pay Check and Health Insurance

    Cons

    If you are a Black Woman and looking for a home, this is the place for you. The offices of this Co are mostly black women with black managers and black VP's. They have set up the Good Old Boy network among themselves. They promote blacks,recruit blacks and whites are seen as a restriction for them to get more blacks on the job.

    Advice to Management

    Check out how each department is being run and if anyone is being discriminated against because they are white. Yes White!
