      Pros

      Cares a lot about people, happy to support time off for mental illness, tries to listen to concerns and address them, feels very safe and secure working for them

      Cons

      Telephony job itself is emotionally draining and underpaid for basically being a therapist to people in financial trouble. Some opportunity but not enough, takes too long to progress
