    Pros

    Very positive, team work environment! This is my first full time position out of college and I'm really enjoying it. The training is very hands on and everyone I work with is extremely helpful. Management is super accessible when you have a question or would like feedback.

    Cons

    I've really enjoyed working here so far and don't have any complaints. You are on the phone a lot of the day, which is fine with me, it might not be for some.
