    Pros

    None, no pros to this company

    Cons

    Horribly management both at team level and higher management. Very cliche and cattiness is high. Bullying happens daily with other staff turning a blind eye to it. Would not recommend to anyone especially young women

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Respect what they are saying.
