      Pros

      There is a lot of work, you'll probably never run out of things to do. There are some nice people there.

      Cons

      Quick growth lead to lots of new managers that were not trained, and don't know what they're doing. Terrible lack of communication. No training to be heard of, Limited opportunities for advancement. Mgt is ok with working staff to death to to make up for mistakes they made. Environment can be hostile and retaliation happens.
