    Pros

    The people are awesome. Management is pretty good as well and a great place to get started.

    Cons

    I have had horrible past work experiences so I don't have anything to complain about here. I'm sure I could find something, but why bother. They don't have education benefits. A lot of places pay for a master's degree.

    None
