    Pros

    Laid back environment, excellent benefits. Many opportunities to learn and grow. Work is very rewarding, a real sense of care for our customers from all teams.

    Cons

    Company in transition at the moment after being acquired, but senior leadership has been very transparent. Internal process seems to slow things down.

    Advice to Management

    Training seems to have slowed in the last couple of years, give the employees more opportunities to help our customers! Keep up the transparency, keeping people informed leads to motivated teams.
