    Seems to be getting better in the last year or so.....

    Producer (Current Employee)
    Niagara Falls, ON (Canada)

    ProsUpper management seem very interested in helping and working with their employees as well as being very fair. It is a very stable environment and their are lots of opportunities to explore area's of creative interest and the company is willing to pay for further training in your area of interest.

    ConsMiddle management is very different from senior management. They seem to be more interested in protecting their spot as opposed to helping their employees develop. Unfortunately because it is a good place to work there is very little opportunity to move up because nobody leaves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management should continue with what they are doing, continue to supply employees with the best equipment possible to do their jobs and support them with the proper training. Regular meetings with the local systems in appreciated and does not go unnoticed.
     There is a need to push middle management to be as progressive and as supportive as senior management.
