    Pros

    It's a job. Not the greatest job out there, but it pays well.

    Cons

    Not enough hours in a work week for all the work to be done.
    Will have to stay over hours, almost everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people. Or people will quit for being overworked. (Not likely)
