    A teamwork atmosphere for the most part
    Willing to be flexible on your schedule especially for important events or college
    Able to have company perks like paid/sick vacation,401k, and insurance
    Ability to move up quickly your career, just pass the tests
    OPEN DOOR policy for when you are feeling treated unfairly, no retaliation
    Get raises and/or promotion every time you pass eval
    Pay is decent if you've been with the company for so long

    Cons

    Can be strict about working holidays and overtime
    Won't always grant vacation time depending, schedule early
    Have to be a jack -of- all -trades
    Customers are rude at times, must use good customer service skills

    Advice to Management

    It helps everyone when management listens to their employees more often. The employees work harder because they feel valued and management gets to meet their goals which means more bonuses.
