Pros

Decent pay.
Management is clueless so you can get away with almost anything.
No one is ever fired. Employees get laid off because of "restructuring" or their job has been eliminated.

Cons

Family owned.
No job advancement in certain departments.
No comp time.
Most everyone is made Salary exempt whether job warrants it or not.
No overtime.

Advice to Management

The walls have ears. Saying, "They're lucky to have jobs", in a private management meeting will not stay private vary long.
Two years of consultants is way too long.
Keeping employees because they are friends of the family is not good managment.

    Pros

    -good pay
    -decent benefits and timeoff

    Cons

    -recently several people were laid off with absolutely no warning
    -there's no actual training, you're just thrown in
    -people either get multiple formal reviews or none at all
    -stress stress stress
    -you never know if you're going to be let go or promoted
    -often promotions don't come with raises
    -terrible office environment with no room to work or privacy
    -family business
    -management has no idea what's going on with the company until they're suddenly in financial trouble, then they foolishly lay off groups of hardworking loyal employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire people and create positions if you're just going to eliminate them because the company is bleeding money due to your mistakes. Why don't you try shaving off some family members salaries instead? It's like when times get tough, you just let everyone go who isn't family. Oh and Instead of moving family members around from department to department, hire people who are qualified for their job and reward them for it.

    Pros

    Decent hours and time-off benefits.

    Cons

    No accountability, poor communication. Do not provide employees with the proper resources and training to perform jobs efficiently. Salary is not always competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be acknowledged and rewarded for the skills that they bring to the company, not for their personal relationships with management.
