Pros

Money is the only thing and there are similar paying jobs. The sign on bonus is why people stay for a bit

Cons

Operations Environment has high turnover Overworked High Stress Due to the clickish nature of upper managers, you may or may not be liked. And, you may or may not hear about it, but it is likely they told someone who told someone.

Advice to Management

Learn an effective way to teach your managers to lead, learn the business, and protect your lower level managers from being treated horribly until the quit. You (not we as I no longer like working for this company) are losing talent for no solid good reasons.

    So much for "attack the process, not the person".

    Pros

    Competative pay Good benefits A few decent people still work there.

    Cons

    Shady operation- when something doesn't work, they don't look at the broken pieces, they blame the people rather than work with them to correct the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play the double jeopardy game (have a corrective discussion with the employee then turn around and write them up for the same issue that had already been discussed and corrected). Also, quit changing policies just because you're not getting the results you want. Give the current policies a chance to take hold and results to happen.

    Pros

    The pay is competitive. The insurance is very good. You are given a significant amount of responsibility in order to develop.

    Cons

    You are required to work at least 1 weekend day every week. Compensation is based on the time you have worked for the company, not performance. Responsibility and expectations at the management level can be overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Get around the facility more often. Meet the people in the departments and give more real time quality feedback. Actionable feedback allows for more effective shifts.
