      Pros

      Flexible breaks Good to get experience of you have none Mostly decent coworkers Free coffee Not penalized for being a few minutes late

      Cons

      No salary expectations beyond what you get hired at Very limited advancement opportunities Global company that's feels like a pyramid scheme No bonuses, no tuition reimbursement, and no raises for doing a good job. Pays too little too hire experienced technicians

      Advice to Management

      I'd give advice, but they're probably looking for a better job too, and/or don't care.
