Review:

"A Tedious Workplace "

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 16, 2017

Perhaps look into seeing if the workload can be changed up a bit to keep employees from getting bored and giving up."

Pros : The pay here is generous for the work that is required of people here and the experience of the people.
Cons : The work here tends to be kind of tedious and drags out forever with no end in sight. Even if you finish it the next day will be just like the previous.
