    Pros

    Stability is great. Benefits and salary are very good.

    Cons

    Top heavy in upper management for such a small company. There are VP's with only two employees under them!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at middle to upper management staff. It is very top heavy!
    Some of the managers are still using the old "union vs management" mentality.
    The outlook of the company is positive as the CEO genuinely cares about the employees.

    Pros

    Because it's a small company, one can gain a variety of experience while working in the same position. Senior management is accessible and top-down communication is very good most of the time. Employees are very dedicated and are willing to go above and beyond normal duties. Employees are routinely recognized for good performance.

    Cons

    Some employees work a lot of overtime due to workload caused by understaffing. Hourly personnel are good with it because of the OT, and most salaried people don't mind either because mangement is flexible when it comes time for vacation and personal time off, however, too much for too long gets old.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you invest in hiring more people it may free up your management to implement innovative ideas to improve productivity which may reduce costs. You will also be better prepared to address the aging workforce issue.

    Pros

    The company is very stable. Aside from a few weather related hiccups the company is very stable. If stability and security is what you're looking for this is the place to be.

    Cons

    The company has too many layers of management. This leads to inefficiencies that arise from a deficiency of use of such management.

    The ability of moving up the latter is very limiting as well. It seems as if management only hires their friends for many positions.

    The company is also unwilling to change outdated business processes. Management hinders innovation in the workplace by abiding to the philosophy of "if it's not broken why fix it" when in reality there are many parts of the company you can improve.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. There is a rather large disconnect from your frontline up to the managerial positions.
