    Pros

    So far, there is room to grow and they give you the opportunity to create your own path. I knew very little about my job, and 2 1/2 years later I know my job in and out. I'm learning other skills not just pertaining to my job.

    Cons

    We had a 9/10 schedule but not anymore, it's only a con because we were use to having every other Friday off. That would really only be it for me. I enjoy working with my teams here.

    Advice to Management

    None.
