          I have been working at Sonic full-time for more than 6 years

          Pros

          Great culture and growth benefits and pay. People i work with are the top in the industry

          Cons

          Not sure what the future holds for Sonic since we were acquired by Insprire Brands and now a private company. Many talks of moving Sonic to Atlanta and this is not an option for me

          Advice to Management

          Give employees a better grasp on the future of the business. Are we staying in OKC or not.
