    Pros

    Free donuts, great working hours and if you work in Corporate location in Kansas City Missouri, you have your Own Office.

    Cons

    Lack of training because you're pretty much on your own. Management very cold and I never felt like I was part of the team.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over again. Have Management take classes in 101 Etiquette and communication.
