    Great people to work with. Almost everyone you see walking around is in a good mood and happy to be there, as much as anyone is happy to be "at work".


    Very tied into the "old way" of doing things. Very difficult to introduce new ideas, since most everyone has been there for 5-10+ years. Very strict on clock-in and clock-out times.

    Advice to Management

    Technology has advanced greatly in the past 20 years, but there seems to be a reluctance to adopt new ideas and new, more efficient, ways of doing things. It may be a good idea to flush out the middle-management and bring in people who can bridge the gap between the tried-and-true and the new.
