    Pros

    Great, friendly people to work with..... Good Benefits

    Cons

    Poor communication between between departments

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to eliminate positions, you should give advance warning, so staff can start to look elsewhere for employment. 4 days is hardly notice.....

    Flexible work schedule, great people, working with the military you feel like you're contributing to something very important
