    Pros

    Pay is not that bad for the area. There is better but harder to get jobs. They will hire pretty much anyone.

    Cons

    Poor management
    Lose benefits every year
    Not the place it once was.
    No work life balance.
    Production works for support departments instead of the other way around.
    Does not follow it's own policy of overtime notification.
    Probably 10 different work schedules. Everything from 7 1hr shifts. To 1hr rotating shifts. They squeeze every minute they can out without regard for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to plan more than a hour in advance. Follow all polices not just the one you need at a specific moment.

    Pros

    - Job Security
    - Great coworkers

    Cons

    - Job security is both good and bad. Its good for knowing you dont have to worry about being fired or losing your job even when the economy is down. It's bad because people that are not capable of doing their job also have job security. This leads to more capable people having to picking up extra work to make up for those that are not capable.

    - HVAC department will work employees to the bone. New faces all the time because turn over is so great.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ignoring the problems that are very clearly in front of you
