Former Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

You'll have to work hard at first to learn the ropes but it is worth it. They will take care of you if you stick it out.

Pros : This is a great place to get your feet wet and start learning with hands-on work. You'll learn a lot here.
Cons : Things can get overwhelming at times and sometimes you'll just have to rely on yourself to get the work done.
