    Pros

    being a new employee, having most people be willing to help and assist me is quite a wonderful thing. it makes my learning the task at hand a much easier process.

    Cons

    So far, the only downside is coming from my end and that is only because due to being scheduled for swing shifts, I have a hard time spending time with my youngest son. I can only hope to be scheduled more during the day shift.......maybe in the future :-)

    Advice to Management

    none at the moment, so far, things are quite ideal and can only hope that I will be considered for a full time/ dayshift position in the nearest future......

    Inter-departmental communication is not as frequent as it should be; in my experience, my salary is lower than industry standard

    Pros

    They have a generous benefit package and PTO accrual. Numerous opportunities for advancement within the company. The company has properties all around the country.

    Cons

    The HRA and health coaching required to receive a discount on benefits seems excessive but I guess most companies have implemented this policy.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees and let them feel empowered to make decisions without having to get approval for most things.

    Senior management needs improvement. A lot of dead weight with one individual calling the shots.
