    Pros

    Is a great company to work for, fast pace place , great benefits and fun culture .

    Cons

    A lot of the departments have flexible hours , however the renewals team are very strict with the hours - some positions are more open to working from home , accommodations like coming early to leave early .

    Advice to Management

    It would be great that there was more flexibility in the role to help accommodate employees needs. Different options like 8-4 ,9-5 ,7-3. Some suggestions
