    Pros

    Great team. People will cover for you if you're going to be OOO. Anyone will help you. You can WFH on snow days.

    Recently acquired by Randstad. No clear direction of where the company will be in the near future but they've had layoffs so it doesn't look good. All executive management was either pushed out the door or have found new employment because they know that the company is tanking.

    Beware you may be next on the chopping block.
