Pros

Decent salary; great experience an a wide variety of projects; always opportunities for learning new things; strong emphasis on safety.

Cons

Most significantly is a lack of job security. It is a company in a very cyclical industry, so a loss of a project could mean that you are on "company convenience leave" at home without pay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep paying just above market for pay. Do performance reviews bi-annually. Give raises, bonuses, and/or promotions according to the annual reviews. Give at least a cost of living raise annually.
