"A Dull Workplace"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Consider hiring more people and spicing the work up with different workflows to keep people from burning out too quickly.

Pros : You can expect to make lots of money here and have lots of doors open to you after working here.
Cons : The work here is so boring that I often see people falling asleep at work and then rushing to catch up when they wake up.
