Review:

"Possibly a Perfect Workplace"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Remind people that socializing is optional and keep people from stressing from it too much but also encourage those that want to join in to do so.

Pros : Not only is everyone here paid fairly but everyone just seems to get along and is fairly relaxed. It would be in character for most people to say hello outside of work and just chat.
Cons : Some people may hate the forced feeling of interacting with co-workers outside of normal work hours if they have a hard time with dealing with people.
