    Pros

    Meeting nice fellow workers and customers

    Cons

    Grossly under staffed, most managers think they know every thing, are never wrong and not willing to listen helpful suggestions. Nearly all managers only give negative critiques and rarely give thanks or well dones to employees. All employees are told they are not working fast enough or productive.

    Rank has privilege, but the ranking personal are not always the smartest. Happy employees are more productive than brow beaten employees.
