    Pros

    Great Pay. Great Coworkers. Ambiance is just pure heaven on earth. Management is just superb, under Bob Bowers tutelage.

    Cons

    No longer in the Syracuse area, having relocated to Mexico. Too bad that for $1 less for transfer cases, they outsourced American jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move back to Syracuse to build our economy, not theirs
