    Pros

    Benefits are top notch, working schedule is 9/80 so you get every other Friday off, which allows more work/life balance.

    Cons

    Working under contract can get ridiculous and iffy. Advancement means moving from current location depending on the size of the team you have.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your door open to your workers and mingle as much as time permits.
