    Advice to Management

    Look into the ground level of the employee's real problems instead of just listening to the leader. Identify individual's talent and groom them in their areas of improvement and STOP blamming for non-performance.

    Pros

    Everything. Great Management, work environment, training and mentorship.

    Cons

    Does not hire full time by experience and skills for positions unless you hold a BA. Hard to get hired on full time.

    Advice to Management

    Hire by knowledge, experience and skill and prompt for education to achieve BA. Education and degree does not guarantee work ethic, commitment or ability to apply degree to real time work and job place.
