    Pros

    You can learn a great deal about consumer goods and manufacturing here. Employer gives back to small local community and provides many jobs in town. Most of the line-level and lower- to mid-management people are honest, hardworking, humble and kind, which makes up for a lack of sophistication and diversity.

    Cons

    This is a closely held family business. Senior management has been in place since the 70s and 80s and lacks modern business training. While the business wins awards and contracts for being woman-owned, the only women ever represented in senior management are the current owner and before her, her mother. Yet, the awards keep coming. They say there is work-life balance, but there isn't. The senior managers have offices looking into the parking lot, and arriving and leaving outside of business hours is frowned upon. The company is high on nostalgia, looking to the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
