    If you paid your employees a decent wage you would not have such a ridiculously high turnover rate... but you already know that.

    Pros

    McLean is a tight knit community oriented environment where you feel like your work is meaningful.

    Cons

    Notoriously low-paying while being located in one of the most expensive cities in which to live means that there can be high turnaround when employees find better paying work elsewhere. HR is inflexible regarding promotions and raises for non-Harvard appointed staff. Free parking is prohibitively limited due to Belmont's restrictions.
