Pros

Very easy to get started, training is optimal for anyone with a high school education. Management was eager to assign difficult projects to eager employees. Ideas for optimization were met by management with eager ears.

Cons

No real career advancement available if you start too low in the company, mainly blue collar work. Even if you have a degree and have many accomplishments, you will be looked over. Management was horrible at best. No real supervision or management was available over the course of my career. In a performance based department this is not ideal, and many hours were wasted in overtime.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

At least in certain departments, supervisors need to supervise, not shop on amazon all day then complain about the work not being finished on time.
