    Pros

    OK salary,pension and all the benefits are good. Job is not too hard, some overtime too had. People are decent and are there for the same reasons you are.

    Cons

    Stressful,sometimes boring. Many changes occurring, management does not seem to know what they are doing. They tend to promote family and friends instead of those who deserve it.

    Advice to Management

    Use resources you have. Learn to be proactive instead of reacting all the time.
