    Pros

    Was not too many pros

    Cons

    favoritisms - people who have been working longer than 5 years get special treatment on hours or who they can/shall work with.

    Drama - management has a horrible way of expressing how they feel about you to everyone but you. Super unprofessional for management to be talking behind any employees back. Also constantly down talking other/new managers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional.
