      Pros

      Decent pay and quality tools

      Cons

      They are literally going to work us till we drop. We can’t keep up! Every other day something new and Covid didn’t help because now we have 12 virtual meetings a week. We should hire journalist for all of the reporting we have to do. When are we supposed to sell something. Managers throwing people under the bus. Managers taking credit when they never stepped one foot on the job site or even talked to the customer.
