Pros

Most staff care about what they do. Benefits are great, especially tuition remission and health insurance.

Cons

Managers get no training or guidance in management or leadership. Some are great because they happened to get good mentorship, but there is nothing in place to ensure that managers & directors are anything other than good worker bees, so that's what most of them are.

Advice to Management

If you are promoting someone to a supervisory role, make sure they get the training and support to develop appropriate management skills.

    Pros

    There are fantastic benefits. The school offers tuition remission which allows you to attent MET college for almost no cost, the health care benefits are very affordable, you are given lots of time off, both vacation time and paid holidays.

    Cons

    The salary is on the low side in comparison with other employers in the area. Working for such a large corporation there are many people and steps to go through before you can make any changes.
