    Pros

    The flexible schedules and generous PTO is hard to come by in any industry. With pay that is incredibly low for the industry, they compensate you with ample vacation time. The people are fun, kind and do not bring the competitive pettiness you encounter at many corporate companies. A great place to learn professional foundations & grow your career. They invest in their star employees early in their career path. Management roles are limited, but if you are a go-getter willing to put in the time, you will be rewarded based on competency rather than age which is a rare find in an employer.

    Cons

    The pay is below the industry median for the responsibility that is entrusted to each role. This can be a good thing, as you receive a great deal of responsibility and trust at an early stage of your career. At certain locations, blind faith is placed in senior employees. Senior managers are paid what an entry level employee would be paid at other companies. HR often falls back on hollow phrases like, "We don't do this for the money," which can be an unfair copout to staff that needs to make a living and often works long evening and weekend hours impacting time at home.
