The company is a good company as long as you have the right management which I didn't.

ProsThey allow you to balance your work with your daily live, have a great benefit package, provide overtime at the time of merger which means extra money in our pockets.

ConsSometimes the work load is too little for everyone to go thru the day, however when someone quits or gets fired they take a long time to get replaces and one time from 7 in a department we went down to 3 & the work load increased excessively as you may immagine, however they did nothing to hire someone to help.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is important to treat everyone equally, even when you have differences with one or two employees, because it is greatly noticeable.
