    Pros

    This is a great company for Caucasians! The buddy-buddy system allows you to rise in the company. Management positions are easy obtain. HR''s system of appointing job positions instead of allowing people to fairly interview for position ensures that management will be Caucasian!

    Cons

    This is the most racist company I have ever worked at. The system ensures that minorities are treated as slaves. The site is 50% African American but there are only 2 low level African American managers at the site. There are African Americans with undergraduate and graduate degrees on site but they are not considered for management jobs. It is so racist that I would not be surprised to see an African American hanging from a noose under the ABB flag on the ABB flag pole.

    Advice to Management

    You say the company is an Equal Opportunity company but those are words and you are talking the walk instead of walking the talk. If you are going to continue with your current path then please put a banner on the front door saying " AFRICAN AMERICAN MANAGERS NOT WELCOME!!! ONLY AFRICAN AMERICAN SLAVES ALLOWED!!!
