    Pros

    Good hours if you do the work, good relations with the management, always get my work done, I always smile

    Cons

    Bad pay, expects one person to do everything, other employees don't pull their own weight and lazy, they don't care

    Advice to Management

    It's nice that they have their favorite employees that they rely on, but it would be nice to not have one person be expected to do everything and run around like a crazy person
