    Pros

    The majority of people are extremely helpful from department to department. I really enjoy working for this company. Benefits are great!

    Cons

    Some managers need sensitivity training. One thinks they are doing a good job;however, come review time you find out that you really aren't working out as they expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice for upper management is to take time to listen to your workers. Help them to succeed, and they will help you succeed!
