    Pros

    The environment makes it easy to go to work and enjoy your work. People make the company great.

    Cons

    Had some trouble with older employees not accepting of new ideas. Some stubborn people working on the manufacturing floor and maintenance staffs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get everyone on the same page, old employees need to accept new ideas and younger staff should be accommodating to older ways of doing things.
