    Pros

    Good benefits. Go on STD. They just really don’t care.

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant at this company. If you are not on the in crowd it doesn’t matter what you do. They love to let people go right before Christmas. Horrible management with unrealistic goals. Super cheap, like they don’t even want to pay you for hours worked. Bonuses HAHAHAHAHA! What a joke. Be prepared to work all the time to cover people on STD. I mean all of the time.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees better. It will make you better. When you actually get someone that doesn’t go on std KEEP THEM!!!!!
