    Pros

    wonderful community, fast paced and you are doing something different every day so it is never boring.

    Cons

    when trying to book a holiday i had to call in several times, email managment and send in written notification based on my holiday dates. Secondly i was unaware of my holiday being declined until the day before i left, thus i had to get cover from my fellow employees and get in contact with higher managment.
