    Pros

    Terrible company to work for. No pros

    Cons

    This company does not care it's employees. They have terrible benefits, terrible work life balance options. They do not care how badly they screw you over. I worked for this company for a year and they never withheld federal income tax. They withheld all other taxes but not federal income tax.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and how you screw with their lives.
