    Pros

    Coworkers were awesome, and the company events were usually fun. Bonus discounts on certain items throughout the year. Health-awareness programs.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. No training! Lack of respect from management and other senior employees. Very little freedom; this is mostly a result of management not trusting the people they hire.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your workers. Communicate. Show them they're important!

    Pros

    Decent pay and hours are there if you're willing to devote your whole life to them.

    Expect you to fully commit all your time to them, hard to work with on scheduling, filling out a limited availability form is basically saying "give me 12 hours a week" have extremely high expectations yet give you little time to finish anything.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees like people, not robots.
