    Pros

    Not the worst but not a great place to work. Office in a good location. Covered parking. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Boy's club big-time. My "supervisor" was there maybe three days a week, more interested in her daughter's cheerleading, and another showed up once a month - there was no work from home. Preferential treatment.

    They do not train very well and they need a better computer system.

    Spend more time with the employees to see what they do on a daily basis
