    Pros

    Salary was ok and benefit package was good, especially maternity benefits. One thing to keep in mind is that is that management is salaried and expected to work a minimum of 45 hours a week.

    Cons

    Corporate has no loyalty to their employees. Its is all about politics. The company makes it very clear that you are replaceable at anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people better

    Pros

    If you work hard you will be promoted. Make sure you get in good with management. Company was recently bought out so maybe corporate structure will change?

    Cons

    Review process was a joke. 0-5% per year but it's almost impossible to get more than 2%. Computer systems were ridiculously slow with them implementing modern programs on systems that should have been upgraded five years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to those who offer loyalty and do a good job.
