    Pros

    Meals provided and snacks; which is awesome since we are constantly working.
    Flexible.

    Cons

    Culture deck is whack. Freedom of responsibility is whack. A lot of favoritism is practiced and communication amongst team does not exist. Management does not communicate on changes only to secure job security.
    Always have to watch your back, two faced monsters

    Advice to Management

    Need to listen to all employees, not just management.
