"Good Moral Standards"

Current Employee - Reviewed on December 18, 2017

Try to grow and reach out to more potential clients so there is more reliable work to go around so that when I'm at work I'm working and not just sitting around with too much free time.

Pros : Great place to work if you value your home life, management puts in the effort to ensure everyone has a stable and reliable work life balance which is good for those with a family life.
Cons : Work can be hard to come by at certain times work is generally given to those with experience first so quality is ensured but leaves some of us twiddling out thumbs.
