    Pros

    Well structured company. Everyone works hard and takes ownership of their work. Employees are kind to one another and eager to help each other.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room to move up unless you work at a plant. Don't count on a bonus or pay raise. They haven't given them in a few years. Lots of people have left in the last few years because of poor pay.

    Advice to Management

    Employees look to be rewarded by pay and bonuses. I hope that in the raises are given to more people and that hard work is recognized.
