    Pros

    Company thinks about all stakeholders when making decisions - employees, clients, ownership, regulators, etc., and makes balanced decisions. Everyone I've worked with has been pleasant and hardworking. Company has been great thinking through their Covid-19 response, putting the safety and welfare of employees first while also doing everything they can to meet client needs. The Executive team really stepped up their communications during Covid-19 as well, keeping us updated on the business and their response to the pandemic. During a normal working environment, there is an onsite cafe, exercise facility, free coffee, walking trails, and many other employee friendly perks.

    Cons

    Nothing that stands out at the moment for me.

    Pros

    Lots of wonderful things about this place! Management was wonderful, True leaders. Co-workers were caring and more like family. There is a gym, masseuse, and a cafe with fresh made healthy foods everyday. There is a track around the building and basketball courts to take advantage of in the warmer weather. You were able to listen to headphones while you worked. They had a bunch of catered picnics on the patio in the back of the building, with a DJ. The work was fast and steady and you are in charge of your own workload, so time management skills are important .

    Cons

    The only Con that I can recall were the pay-raises. A couple cents raise, and I don't recall any bonuses. Also,
