    Pros

    office perks, relaxed atmosphere, good company culture, a lot of time off.

    Cons

    No consistency when it comes to growing their employees. There are alot of people that have been here for years with little growth then there are some people that come in and get promoted multiple times in a short period of time. It can be very frustrating.

    No benefits for "permalance" employees (even though i've been working here full-time for almost 3 years straight with little to no time off). The one healthcare plan offered is wildly unaffordable.
