    Pros

    Over the past many years, it has been a great place to work. They have had some good managers who created some good teams.

    Cons

    Going out of business... we all are loosing our jobs. Over the past many years some of the bad apples are really rotted out the barrel.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the bad apples and hold them accountable. Recognize that when only half the employees do any work, the non-productive half are jovial and nice to be around, but that doesn't mean they are the best employees.
