    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    None I can think of, management is not flexible requires a ten hour work day, pay is not in line with the amount of experience necessary

    Cons

    Dead end job, terrible management, supervisors/managers are frequently out of the office with no apparent reason. This makes getting work done very difficult, meetings are constantly cancelled not a good place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Train new employees instead of just telling them what to do. Be more considerate of others time and try to present in the office at least one to two times per week.
