    Pros

    I have a great Job and make good money

    Cons

    Most of The people working next too you are not trustworthy and not good people. They cause lots of trouble in this place as well as those who left salary to become management are very unprofessional. This place has communication issues in every area and definatly a huge problem for this company

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to build a better relationship and acknowledge those who do their job and go out of their way instead of no acknowlwdgement. Also being quick to wanting to send ppl home that do their jobs and enjoy the work. You as management quick with the tongue ruin wanting to do better without having any sort of understanding. start being more professional in whom you hire in as management before bringing those from hourly that needed anger management in that hated the company but are now a part of the company itself. I have to shake my head at that nonsense of what where you all thinking when pulling that...

    Pros

    Best company originally, had training and job descriptions to follow. Everyone was friendly.

    Cons

    Upper management that taught you the rules were not required to follow the rules. If you were one of the boys, you were ok, if not look out. Moving the offices to a new building split the company.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you teach or don't teach at all. Have a weekly get together with all the employees to insure they all know each other in the building.

    Pros

    Benefits, pay and atmosphere are great. You must be willing to do the work and take on more areas outside your job and you will be noticed and recognized.

    Cons

    Work life balance leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within more and realize students fresh out of college do not make great employees.

    Mixed messages from local management and corporate in Mexico.

    There's great people who know what to do - let them do it and push back when directives from Mexico make no sense.
