      Pros

      Standard benefits New office Snacks

      Cons

      Bankrate and new RV management do not care about you, employees. The only thing they care is how to make a profit, giving new tasks and assignments. If it didn’t make a profit then of course someone has to be out. They don’t care about individuals. Of course we all need to make an income/money and going to work for most of us is just simply make our living. And it is understandable. But if you have a different opportunity, then run away from this place.
