Make sure that you don't let any good eggs get stuck with the bad eggs because of a simple misunderstanding.

Pros : I have been here for around two years now and everyone is happy and friendly. Any issues that I have had come up have been quickly fixed.
Cons : Some people don't last here very long because of how swiftly problems are dealt with. Some good eggs get mixed up in that.
