Your employees are the foundation and strong point of your company; treat them right.

Pros : If You Shoot for the Stars, You Won't Get Out of The Stratosphere Here.
Cons : The higher ups at this firm don't seem care a whole lot for us in the support team. While the starting salary and pay may be high, don't expect to get a raise or bonus anytime soon. I learned that the hard way. Promotion is very unlikely as upper management positions rarely become available.
