    Pros

    Decent pay, benefits, etc. Some really good people at our location. Coworkers that pour their lives into their work.

    Cons

    Top management doesn't realize how hard we really work to attempt to meet outrageous goals. EHS now has delegated out all of his asats to random people that have no idea what they're doing.

    Advice to Management

    Theus Rowell needs to understand that his management style is not sustainable.

    Pros

    Pay. Big Company. Safety procedure.

    Cons

    Poor Management blinded by personal preferences and prejudice. Low moral and no integrity, All they care is about their job security and promotion. Therefor, back stabbing is the culture. The worst is they don't realize it. Have to work holidays and weekends for salaried employees

    Advice to Management

    Have better communication with the bottom workers to know the truth
