    Pros

    Everyone here is like family. The culture and atmosphere about the company is fun, engaging and competitive. It is definitely a work hard and play hard type of company and they really value your grit and grind. There is so much career growth and opportunity here, you will just have to work for it! The company is willing to train you and help you reach new goals but, you have to be willing to take it.

    Cons

    There is still some growing pains and different changes with the company. It's exciting but if you don't like things changing and experiencing growing pains then it's probably not for you.
