    Pros

    There are some great people employed there that are willing to share knowledge and experiences and not be threatened that a individual will steal their job. Unfortunately, those individual are sparse throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, very much run by and still practices the "good ol' boy system" Extremely poor pay with poor benefits to match

    Advice to Management

    Retire the good ol' boys and modernize the company into the 21st century. Tenure does automatically suggest quality. Sometimes a tenured individual can simply be taking up valuable space, contributing nothing great, hindering another valuable asset in the form of an employee.

    Pros

    You get 2 weeks vacation. Which is more than most other places right off the bat. I was able to do a lot of school work also. But that's about it.

    Cons

    The managers suck! They have no management skills whatsoever. If you give them an suggestion or express concern about a fellow employee, they automatically go into defensive mode and won't listen to what you are saying.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Not everything is a fight. You are not getting attacked when we tell you something. So grow up and accept that suggestions given to you.

    Sweatshop with weird, manipulative management. High turnover with certain members of the management, worrying.

    Pros

    Looks great from the outside in.

    Cons

    Does not pay market salary. Everyone who enters at the same time are pushed along at the same pace. Your advancement is a secret. they do not let you know what you will be able to make. For a company the does not like uncertainty from their customers they do a really bad job of letting people know what their potential is.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees market salraies so they can reduce turnover.

    Pros

    A personable Texas corporation that cares about its employees. Not a lot of room for growth though. Caring management though.

    Cons

    Very, very small raises, regardless of how long you've been with the company. Extremely poor health benefits with high deductibles.

    Advice to Management

    Reward employees for their dedication and length of service by giving them raises, and don't hire new employees on at higher salaries.

    Pros

    A solid company which generally seems to have integrity for the most part. Has local values that the customers can identify with.

    Cons

    The goals can be unrealistic and there isn't much communication from the top to the bottom. Horrible benefits. Other than that, there isn't a whole lot of cons.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees more and find other ways to cut costs. There is plenty of fat to be trimmed elsewhere other than employee bonuses or other compensation.
