    Pros

    Decent pay and 8-5 with paid holidays off.

    Cons

    The company micro manages every detail. This is a relatively smaller company who just acquired a large one and seems lost on how they want to run the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a face. No one even knows who the current upper management is.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
