work/life balance? they just want you to work for them, no questions, just do as they say. And MUST be on their schedule(which is changed daily!!)
Salary/Benefits? Salary is low at best, the pay(salary or hourly) is cheap, don't expect no big raises, no matter how hard you work. Or how much you do for them.
Job Security/Advancement? HA HA!! They fire - more ... you at will, if the higher ups like you, you'll last a little longer, but if even one of them don't, you can say goodbye. Advancement only comes if you know some of the higher ups; no special treatment here unless your related or besties. And no ... - less
