      Worst company I've ever worked for.

      Pros

      Benefits and it's a paycheck!

      Cons

      Blatant favoritism, harassment and retaliation. Management is woefully incompetent, immature and bad behavior is encouraged to continue by upper management. Suggestions and new ideas are shot down if it's not from one of the "chosen" ones. No one takes responsibility instead it's a big blame game.
