Great place to work, except in a down economy

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsGood pay, benefits, with plenty of overtime if you want it. Good corporate culture overall. Promote from within at the lower levels of management.

ConsDuring a recession, they get past "layoffs" by forcing early retirement, even if you don't want to retire.
In the union environment, management believes they can dictate to the union, and ignore union requests entirely.

Advice to Senior ManagementBelieve Mike Morris's advice, that you should do the right thing, because it is the right thing to do. Treat your union employees as people, not numbers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
