    Pros

    Nice work-family balance. Nice benefits, clean environment, nice people, decent location, minimal micromanagement from the executive level.

    Cons

    SALARY!!!!! Clearly well-below average. Other than that, it would be career opportunity. They do not have a good career path for employees; therefore, we rarely retain good to excellent talent. It seems to be a "starting" place for many college graduates and then they move on. Executives seem "okay" with this concept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please pay people what they deserve with respect to other jobs in the same market. We have a talented group of people and it would be wise to retain best talent as opposed to train and rehire, constantly!
