    Pros

    Fun workplace with awesome managers who are good at what they do

    Cons

    A tad stressful at times, wouldn’t recommend working here if you can’t handle pressure of time and dealing with picky people. Sometimes the coworkers blow up under stress and get very negative. You must be positive to survive this job.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little stricter on type of behavior some employees get away with.
