    Pros

    The benefits and PTO from day one are great. Security is upheld and a major concern. Does the best they can to please their customers.

    Cons

    Management(save for one or two supervisors) tend to ask our opinion on things, then think that their own thoughts are what we said instead and go with that. Equipment needs fixed/replaced BADLY! 11+ hour nights back to back for weeks. Constantly changing clock in times with maybe a week at best notification. High productivity demands with low support. Will be penalized if you need to leave early for any reason, even if TOLD to go home due to sickness or even injury. Will be penalized if you leave ON TIME when there are routs left to be picked. Will NOT train those that are interested in being trained for different areas even if said areas are in dire need of more personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to your employees, they do have brains, and one ore two MIGHT actually have a better idea than you do every now and then.

    Pros

    Professional company that provides a great and prompt service to its customers. Good benefits, all the essentials.

    Cons

    Employee satisfaction gets lost in the need to adhere to the customer's demands. Long weeks (50 hours) during inopportune hours. Work life balance suffers greatly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should try to implement employee feedback more when it attempts to change work processes.

    Take better care of your best people or they will leave, more transparancy, practice what you preach

    Pros

    Besides being employed, I can't think of a pro...

    Cons

    Work - life balance doesn't exist at all. It feels like a cult more than it feels like a job.

    Pros

    Excellent culture, benefits, and work environment. Leadership is strong and hierarchy is decentralized. Very flexible working schedule and realistic goals and expectations.

    Cons

    It's a big company so like other big companies can be difficult to move through the red tape and identify key decision makers. Company is growing through acquisition adding complexities.
