    Pros

    Cash, it is a great place to make mad money.

    Cons

    Not much fun. I'm tired of slipping on the wet floors in the place. If the janitors would pick up a broom and mop the floors I'd be good to go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working. You spend too much time looking for your next million dollar house than you do actually working on improving the company.l
