    Pros

    Benefits package, Ability to work remotely

    Open office environment- no place to do real work without distractions.

    Culture is very toxic because you feel like you are always walking on eggshells in how you respond to situations

    Advice to Management

    Do not discount your employees with tenure and knowledge. Older employees know how to get the job done and are very loyal
