    Pros

    Company store onsite, free shuttle to BART, commuter check program. Many people who have been there for years are very helpful and share their knowledge with you.

    Cons

    New Management that makes up their own rules. New people in positions of authority seem to only be there as a stepping stone in hopes of landing a higher position elsewhere, very little care or consideration for actual workers. "New" development dialogue is a joke, just a box to tick on someone's performance management plan.

    Advice to Management

    Give the worker carrying your weight some support to do their and your jobs.
