    I worked at Day Lewis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My branch was very well staffed. The management was supportive. I was given the opportunity to do more than just my normal job.
    Yeah the pressure for services are there. But there is no threat of disclipinary procedure. Day Lewis would rather work with you to find out what is inhibiting you on providing these services.
    I miss working for Day Lewis.

    Cons

    They can be a bit too lenient with staffing. I had issues with certain staff members and it took a lot for some action.
