      Pros

      People are great. Decent benefits. Managers are very on the ball to help with escalations and it's a very flat hierarchy. Never afraid to approach anyone for help.

      Cons

      Hours can be really long for some teams to cover the attrition of the experienced hires and to train the new hires. A lot of contingent workers means we're constantly training people, as the CWs may leave after 6 months, and the cycle rinse and repeats. Pay can be more competitive for the hours that we work on a weekly basis (average pay per hour is quite low).
