    Cons

    People that will be nasty if they feel threatened by your knowledge, ideas, pay you may be getting (until your supervisor assures them otherwise). private club-like shop, that if you are not allowed to join, will "haze" you into submission, or an altercation. Trust NOBODY. Do not confide personal issues with your supervisor. You will notice others acting on your "secret". Making friends is rare, so if you are like I was, don`t talk, do your work. If they are talking football, do not chime in, or "You know everything about football". If you see a stupid method, definitely shut your mouth, and you`ll be OK. It is an atmosphere of nasty. Ever heard of a boss calculating how much more time you took on a job than "so and so", who`s been running it for 15 years? I cannot believe I put up with it for so long. Truth be told, but after a few paid the price, I`ll bet it`s a great shop to start in. As of now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the "management", that is not "managing". You can double your output if you try new idea or two. But what the hey? Management changes like the weather at Greatbatch Medical. So in reality, the "in crowd" of long timers run the place. I realize now that a first year HR person, has no power over a 30 year employee. What was I thinking?
