Pros

Intelligent work force motivated to work with teams. Strong and friendly management rewards those based on performance not how hard you try.

Cons

The company is struggling to keep costs down considering the sequestration. A lot of unknowns in the industry.

Advice to Management

Bring more youth into our aging plants to help energize the workforce and change the current culture.
