    Pros

    Monthly all employee calls discuss positives about the business. They appear to want to be there for the employees.

    Cons

    Don’t provide the equipment you need to get things done. Departments are siloed so virtually impossible to cascade information or understand what you need to do. They work independently but no one knows what their actual role or responsibility is. Benefits are also poor.
