    Pros

    People are excellent. Very casual encourage you to be yourself

    Cons

    Pay is low, huge emphasis on pushing additional services.

    Advice to Management

    I know that services are a big part of the business, but it stresses employees when too much is put on goals that they can not reach instead of encouraging what they are getting right, celebrate individual successes a little more.

    Cons

    A lot of Hours required during holidays

    Advice to Management

    Overall, amazing management with great leaders to encourage others to provide the best results possible. Caring and adjustable to any situation. The only advice that I would provide to management would be provide immediate feedback to when the work provided by employees are not adequate to what is expected, so the employee has an idea to what to improve on individually.
