    Pros

    - Lots of perks (Free Lunches, Christmas Bonus, Etc...) - Decent 401K match (4.5%) - Relatively lax culture (Don't micromanage, and force you to push products non-stop)

    Cons

    Have to work in customer service, will have incredibly rude customers and you just have to accept it. Especially if they have money.

    Pros

    Good starting pay, benefits etc.

    Cons

    Unable to maintain full employment at all branches which causes employees to work even harder without compensation. Resumes sit on desks and apparently only the CEO can approve each job application.
