    Pros

    Good benifits, good pay, retirement, FMLA, vacation, personal and sick days.

    Cons

    Poor management, low employee morale, hours get moved around with no concern for employee home life, favoritism, POOR MANAGEMENT

    Advice to Management

    I love working with the students and my co-workers. Management doesn't care about employees. Moral is low, but management doesn't care. Nor do they try and fix it. they just say"if you don't like it you can go work someplace else".
