    Pros

    Management was willing to listen to your advise on ways things could be changed to better the department and turn around time.

    Cons

    To much play time allowed for some employees. Some took smoke breaks every hour for 10-15 minutes. Play time on personal cell phone, talking, texting, and facebooking all thru the day.

    Advice to Management

    Company has removed business from USA.

    Pros

    listed company, good benefits, fair pay

    Cons

    I get the feeling you have to leave the co if you want a 30% increase in salary

    Advice to Management

    cut back on the soft support stuff. The people making the money are the ones in the workshops not in the offices
