    Pros

    Benefits package comparable to other industry leaders, and the name recognition of the company. Experienced employees willing to work with and train less experienced team members. The current 12 rotating shift schedule.

    Cons

    Lower management refuses to stand up to upper levels of management in the interest of their employees. There is a lot of playing favorites in the company. Company sponsored training is almost non existent. Frequent change just for the sake of change, not to improve any processes. Lack of interest from management on work and equipment installations being done and documented correctly.

    Advice to Management

    Take a little bit of time to listen to your employees and try to do something once in a while to show that you appreciate the work they put in. Stand up for their best interest once in a while instead of always looking for the cheapest way out.

    Pros

    The quality of the people that work here is high and the type of work is very interesting.
    Pay is about the middle of the rest of the industry, benefits are above average.

    Cons

    IT support is awful. Work load is continually increasing and does not look like this is going to level off any time soon. Poor IT support makes an already heavy work load even tougher to manage. It can take a long time (over 2 years ) to get a promised promotion.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of very experienced people working for you, but they are starting to leave for companies with more reasonable work loads. Once those experienced people are gone it will be difficult to rebuild a high caliber workforce.
