    Pros

    Same as all the other reviews - travel

    Poor (uncompetitive) pay Long hours (think +80hours/week) Be careful of the huge amount of POSITIVE marketing that is generated by the marketing team (not you will rarely see less positive comments about the brand) Extremely negative culture Terrible office at MSQ Not good at promoting people
