    Pros

    The people are (for the most part) great. The benefits are good, but be prepared to work all hours and days.

    Cons

    A few bad eggs that enjoy spreading rumors and gossiping. Leads to a bit of toxicity. No such thing as work life balance unless you’re on leadership.

    Advice to Management

    See your employees as people - and not just the Brazilian mafia. All of them. Seeing cliques with leadership leads to less morale. Train your managers on how to manage and guide.
