    Pros

    Absolutely the best company I worked for so far!
    Work/life balance is great!
    You work independently, no one is on your back. There is no micromanagement, they want you to want it for yourself. They love the go getter attitude. The people are awesome, everyone gets along like one big family.

    Great leadership!

    No cons. Well actually we could use more ice lol. Jk. I needed to put at least 5 words 😂. Serious about the ice though 🤔.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going! The great environment makes me want to stay.
