They are out of business because they lie to every single employee they have ever hired. They hired people who were incompetent when it came to managing the budget. They spent way more money than they had coming in and then borrowed money they knew they wouldn't pay back.

Pros and Cons
free lunch birthday parties expense reports were always paid never checked
They lied constantly to their employees. Let staff go 2 days before Christmas
