    Pros

    Consistent work schedule. PTO can be taken at a moments notice. Employees are consistently engaged and working together to complete the task at hand.

    Cons

    There is a huge communication gap between employees and management. We are always at odds end when it comes to having the things that we need to get the job done in a timely matter.

    Advice to Management

    Weekly meetings with employees would help tremendously. This is needed to bridge the gap between where we are as a company and where we are going in the future as a company.
