    Pros

    Great pay, Flexible work hours, respectable, hard-working people, family like atmosphere, incentive based, low education requirements, good standing with the community

    Cons

    Very little upward mobility, upward mobility is based on social networking ability, no union, rights may be altered to the benefit of the company

    Advice to Management

    Hire people based on educational effort not just based on illogical feelings. Provide opportuniites for employees to advance based on effort and not on friendships.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Most employees are harding working and eager to learn. Company treat employees with respect and show care.

    Cons

    disorganized management and saving money in the wrong places...does not hold employees accountable for actions.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job in giving employees feedback. If they are doing a bad job, tell them, vice versa. promote and demote accordingly.

    Pros

    good pay and benefits (guaranteed to be better than almost anywhere), will get plenty of overtime, if more money is your thing

    Cons

    loud, dirty, rotating shift, will get lime burns, will inhale metallic fumes, you've got to many bosses, a supervisor who has no idea how to do his job but likes to tell you how to do yours
