    I have been working at Southern States full-time

    Pros

    Company will promote if you work hard.

    Cons

    The culture is tough. HR won't deal with employees that don't pull their weight. As a result, the work falls on good people. Work long hours with poor life/work balance. The company has been shrinking for years. Good time off program if there are enough people to cover you while you're out (thinly staffed).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out and talk to the employees to better understand what is going on. Realize the world and employees' expectations have changed. People want to feel valued, not just employed. Be more than a paycheck and benefits.

    Pros

    It is a solid company. They have ethics. There is good job security. They have a descent benefits package. The people are nice

    Cons

    No growth or development. You will not be promoted. There is no company culture. The company does not have even a company picnic. (There is one by the employee association, but you have be a member)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make decisions and lead. You are too scared to do something wrong so instead you do nothing.
