Pros

Most of the people are laid back and very nice. Depending on what department you are, some of them can be really fun to work with, others can be nightmares. Nice small town setting. Professional workplace.

Cons

Management can be corporate minded and petty. I know several people who quit because of personal differences, and others that were not hired because they didn't fit the mold. Lots of brown nosing is necessary to keep your job. Wages are pitiful for the majority of the company and their belts seem to be tightening every year, even when their earnings are at record highs. Not much room for upward growth, and workers are often doing the share of two, and not being rewarded for their hard work. Classic corporate structure. They don't seem to realize that paying their lower staff decent wages would make them better workers. They are one of the few employers in this area so they have the advantage that there will always be someone to take the place of an unsatisfied worker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher wages for lower tiered workers. No more company meetings where you tell everybody how many millions the company made when, in the same year, you cut their pay. Verbally letting staff know what a good job they are doing daily.
