    Pros

    Stable company - could spend your life and retire at peace. But it has lost all its charm of the good old 90's

    Cons

    Not enough employee development opportunities
    Not a fair promotion process
    Employees are not rewarded for good work
    Long standing loyal employees are starved for promotion while those that come in with acquisition get a jump
    Overall low employee moral!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognizing employees for good work
    Stop scaling back on benefits
    Shutting off electricity at 5:00 pm is a bad idea. It doesn't provide an environment to succeed
    Recognizing employees for 5 years of service with 1 glass ball, 10 years of service with 2 glass balls and 15 years of service with 3 glass balls was ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS!!!
