      Pros

      professional work environment, good experience

      Cons

      terrible pay, zero work life balance. system is designed ot keep you in poverty and living with your parents or 10 roommates to be able to afford to work here. slightly above minimum wage salary, but when you factor in hours worked, you earn around $11.00 an hour. everyone burns out and quits. high turnover
