    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work schedule, growth potential is fantastic. The company really puts employees first, and their actions show it.

    Cons

    Smaller company, pulling out of a couple of tough years. But pulling out! I think you would have to want to work hard, but if you do the rewards are there for the taking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep employees first, happy employees make happy customers!

    Pros

    Health benefits and 401k. Pay is great. Very little supervision so you can really own your business.

    Cons

    Long hours with no appreciation of work/life balance. Weekends. Small staff

    Advice to Management

    The work is nothing to complain about. There is a lot of self integrity and worth for what you do. I recommend more staff and more directive. Too much flip flopping priorities.
