    I have been working at Federal Signal full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance
    Good benefits
    Acceptable pay
    Relaxed work environment

    Cons

    Just that my department (customer service) closes at 430p but I (just 1 person out of 5) have to stay until 6p. Not really sure why we don't all get off at 430p but I do mind the later schedule because I am able to "sleep in".

    Advice to Management

    So far management is doing a great job. No complaints
