    Pros

    This family owned company is willing to train and promote their employees. The culture is friendly and upbeat most of the time. Average to above average pay for the industry, depending on your skill set and how badly they want you.

    Cons

    Management tend to stress out over visits by the president or CEO, mostly because they are the owners of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax and have faith in your employees
