    Very nice work environment and a healthy company culture that fosters collaboration and teamwork. Great colleagues to work with, who have the company's best interest at heart. Accessible and responsive management team.


    Financial results have been poor, compensation is average or below. In general things move too slow and the attitude is to play things safe, to a fault. Location (Walla Walla) is pleasant and offers great quality of life, but it can be a deterrent to attract new talent to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the management structure, promote a more dynamic decision-making process, attract fresh new talent in some key positions.
