      Pros

      Everyone that works there is very friendly and helpful. The work is good and can keep you busy but sometimes has it slow days. Other than that, the over all atmosphere and environment of the company are very positive.

      Cons

      There are no cons working here

      Frustrating

      Pros

      Good Pay and good work conditions

      Cons

      Highly complex - multi-currencies, difficult accounting system, high pressure training, complex spreadsheets, very poor supervision. Very stressful environment. Seems like THEY are monitoring your movements and what you do. HR seems caring but after a short time it felt like it was lots of nice words and actions but maybe just "lip service".
