Pros

Stable company, pension AND 401(k), on-site fitness centers, heavy bias to promoting from within, strong training programs, very good health insurance (obviously).

Cons

Little differentiation in pay between those who do average work and those who do great work. Nepotism is rampant. Most managers choose to ignore performance issues.

Advice to Management

Give managers more leeway to reward their best employees. Don't encourage pay raises for average work. Take action with managers who let performance problems fester.

    Pros

    Steady Paycheck, 401K, Health coverage (If you want to call it health coverage)

    Cons

    Managers that follow you into the bathroom to make sure you really went to the bathroom Senior management that blows smoke up your rear with cookouts in the parking lot. They can blow smoke up your a$$ but you can't smoke on their property Low Pay: Prepare to make slave wages and expected to work hard for practically free Health Coverage is terrible. High Copays,deductibles and premiums (that's just for employees. Imagine how they are screwing the South Carolina public.) Merit Raises of 1-2% No cost of living adjustment in pay. Pay has not kept up with inflation. High turnover rate The company likes to pick on smokers but doesn't mind 300-500 lb heffers roam their halls.

    Advice to Management

    Get real! Wake Up! Treat and pay your people better! They don't call Blue Cross, The Morale Slayer for nothin.
