    Pros

    Competitive salary
    Family like environment. Employees want to work hard for each other. Close at 4:30 each day
    ESOP - profits flow back through to the employees
    Management does not breathe down your neck - they allow you to focus on your job and be free to perform
    Strong benefits, matching 401k
    The company has a strong percentage of the workforce that are getting closer to retirement which opens alot of doors for younger people

    Cons

    Some operational inefficiencies compared to larger corporations. If you like working in a highly structured environment this is not the company for you. There is room for better standard operating procedures to be in place. I think it will take some new talent to achieve this.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice to give - it's a great company. I think to improve the company needs to hire some operational talent to dial in on some of the inventory management and working capital piece. Maybe Slakey 'bleeds' too much money away in areas.
    Also it seems there is low turnover - I feel the workforce could be more talented in areas. Some hires have clearly not worked out but are still employees.
