    Pros

    Short commute with low traffic

    Cons

    Expected to work long hours, regardless of family responsibilities. Not being available 7x24x365 is considered poor performance. They walk the fine line when it comes to what are legal employment practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce management, reward emplyoyees for hard work.

    It's a laborious job, and one you have to work hard at to get recognized for a job well done.

    Pros

    It can be a fun place to work at times. Management doesn't hover over your shoulder every minute. You are left alone to do your job, and they only say something if you screw up something big.

    Cons

    The drama with some of the coworkers. Rumors spread like wildfire. Feels like you do more work than what you get paid for. Can be quite dusty and dirty most of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize those that do a good job more. People react well to compliments. Don't try to fix something if it's not broken. Listen to input more from those who actually do the job.
