    Pros

    Comrade on the ground level between employees. Lower level management flexible and accommodating to employee needs. Benefit and vacation time is above average.

    Cons

    Let's be real - the merit increases are terrible and a total disservice to the staff that represent the company.
    CEO Gerald Hassell and his sidekicks hoard the money and throw chicken scraps to the employees.
    Absolute disconnect from Corporate as to the needs and well being of the lower level staff.
    A lot of negativity and bad mouthing of the company on the floor due to corporate neglect and disrespect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so greedy to yourselves and shareholders and reward employees for their hard work. Merit increases should average 3-5%. Anything less is a total slap in the face for all those who work long hours and sacrifice on your behalf.
    Gerald Hassell, do all the employees a favor and stop sending corporate wide emails explaining company business and performance. It's all a sham and no one cares!
    Next time you send out an employee wide survey as real and sensitive questions that will engage employees at a serious level. Not the nonsense and typical questions that are framed so you hear what you want to hear.

    Advice to Shareholders: Fire Gerald Hassell and all of corporate staff. Demand employee merit increases and work climate are improved. Yeah! That'll ever happen?

    Pros

    Friendly people, you feel like a part of a global company- if that is something you are looking for.
    Its easy to make connections with different departments and that gives you possibility to move to a different group. Its a global company, so in theory its possible to move to Europe or Asia.

    Cons

    You will not learn much, unless you are lucky enough to have a motivated supervisor.
    Promotions are rare, you will not be rewarded if you work harder than everybody in your group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cross train people! Develop a sensible training program.

    Pros

    If you want a job without a lot of downtown, this is the job for you. When it is slow, its very slow.

    Cons

    The pay is very low and there is very little opportunity for advancemenet within the company. The hours are also not the best. I work 4pm-12am and there is no way I can change my shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities for advancement and start your employees off with better salaries. $24,000 a year with a college degree is not acceptable.
