    Pros

    Overall, these are very good people to work with and for. There will never be a lack of things to do, so if you enjoy new challenges and keeping busy, you get that in spades.

    Cons

    The technology used needs to be updated. The idea of "making-do" with what is in place should be abandoned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want good people to contribute as much as possible, give them your support in the form of more people and better technology.

    Pros

    EVERYONE leaves at quitting time

    Cons

    Very much a big company/corporate culture. You are lost in the numbers, everyone is looking to CYA

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to the business opportunities that you are missing out on because your managers play it ultraconservative in order to always succeed, come out in the black. You are running 25% - 50% high on everything to make sure you make it. Define what your risk tolerance is and then ensure your organization is using it. Start paying attention to how much people are under budget every time and you will notice this pattern. I have done it and your most successful/rewarded managers are the ones who sandbag the most. Willing to share this BTW.

    Pros

    Competitive salary and good benefits

    Cons

    Upper managment is dollar driven. This is good but taken to the extreme with some facilities being affected by tight budgets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the maintenace on facilities closer. Appearance goes a long way. A clean well groomed facility is more attractive to customers and safer.
