    Pros

    Tech support/deposit operations are always extremely helpful! They never shy away from going out of their wait to assist you. Always very friendly and a pleasure to talk to!

    Cons

    Client support is not very friendly they treat the call center as more of an assembly line and refuse to talk to customers for longer then a certain time limit and our customers have complained that the feel shoved into accepting no answers over getting the answers they need.

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job! Keep up the good work!
