    Pros

    Pays higher than industry average, decent benefits

    Cons

    treats workers like sweatshop employees for example no nternet access to ALL employees unless director level or above. If this is a way for them to make sure people don't surf the net and are at work every minute of every day do not know its 2019 and and 99% of people can waste time by being on their phone????

    Advice to Management

    stop treating your staff like factory laborers who don't have any option but to work for you
