    Pros

    Pay and benefits were good for the area, but not in line with the industry. The core workforce is made up of long-term employees.

    Cons

    The Management is restrictive in their HR policies and lacking in follow through on personnel issues and performance review. Merit and cost of living pay is minimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually follow your stated HR polices and treat employees with respect. Communications should be open and honest to all employees.
