    Pay is bad management is awful they don't create a team environment. They don't elevate you on your work but who's grinds with the girl in the office. There agenda is self serving.

    Promote based on performance. Not who's friends with your office people. Have work ethics and integrity. Stop treating the bad people good and the good people bad!

    Pros

    People, summers off, healthcare is good

    Cons

    It's all about the almighty dollar being made off the backs of the hard working people. Likes to keep employees that are mediocre at best just to fill the space.

    Pros

    It is family oriented and some days are better than others.

    Cons

    Management is condescending and treats the students badly. No accountability or oversight of managers. Minimum wage job but expects a salary work ethic. Managers are not understanding of situations the students experience that may impact work performance.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in the students shoes. Many members of management have never attended college so they are not empathetic. Give the same respect you expect.
