    Pros

    Reasonable compensation, Good benefits, Flexible Scheduling

    Cons

    Scheduling-no one wants to work nights/weekends, People who are not ready for management positions are promoted while hard workers are over-looked, Compensation is not commensurate with the production of the business, overworked

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on personality when hiring employees, too many applicants interview well but when placed into office setting there are too many different personalities and no diversity development. Move people up who deserve it, not because they are your buddy or have been employed there for a long time.
