    Pros

    Co-workers were nice. You get an hour for lunch. There is a cafe on the first floor with decent food.

    Cons

    Everything else. Bad wages, managers and coordinators pile on too much work which eventually makes it impossible to get things done. Once a month there was always someone quitting or getting fired.
