Company was great in the 1990's.

ProsMulti-ethnic workforce, safe work environment, ethical. Good bonuses when times are good. Stock grant program and employee stock purchase plan.

ConsCompany has outsourced and cut the workforce to meet unrealistic targets. This has led to a lot of strain on current employees. Poor senior management decisions relating to acquisitions, etc. have left the stock floundering.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
