    Pros

    You form a bond with the people who work around you b/c of shared struggles..

    Cons

    Low pay, horrible hours and conceited management. Also, if you get sick have med issues and miss time b/c of this you can pretty much kiss your job bye bye
     And a doctor's excuse doesn't help your case one bit. Also the health insurance is sky high...very little coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Saying you care about employee well being is one thing, but your actions or lack there of speaks louder than words.
