Cons

-Pay can be bleak, pay raises minimal
-Parking is difficult and costly, for those who don't live close enough to walk to work (bus route is fairly useful though)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider sliding scale parking based on employees salary! The bus route isn't always feasible depending on your work schedule.
