    Pros

    Great name, lots of perks, and generally nice co-workers

    Cons

    those in the studio are set in their ways and come off very condescending. What makes the situation is that no one checks them for this behavior. The main offenders are older, so hopefully they are on their way to retirement

    Advice to Management

    Implement a culture of respect for team members and punish the offending players.
