    Pros

    Good benefits, good 401k matching, also have a retirement fund.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, divisive culture, poor communication among different groups on site, communicating with senior leadership frowned upon, perception is valued over actual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees at every level. Don't count on information that has been passed through 3 or 4 levels of supervisors. Be open to new ideas within the industry and ideas new employees bring from past job experience.
