    Pros

    Excellent compensation, benefits, and work life balance

    Cons

    You have to check your pride and self respect at the door. I consider it a sick work environment for anyone who isn't a member of the upper management club.

    Advice to Management

    Would be pointless, they know exactly what they are doing and won't change a thing.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits cannot be found elsewhere

    Cons

    First, practically no one wants to be there, only the money keeps them from leaving. Absolutely no leadership in any areas of the company. They lead by intimidation and you never really know where you stand unless you have a talent for sucking up. You are either meeting expectations or not, but you will never know what those expectations are. And if you do, you are bound for the door. The mid level management positions are filled with people with fancy degrees from prestigious schools that have no bearing on the work to be done. They claim to want people that are free thinkers, able to make decisions on the spot. This cannot be further from the truth. Usually a director has to approve any vacation requests, regardless of what you are told. Under no circumstances are you allowed to think for yourself. If you do, you are an outcast. But, if you're the type of person that needs to have your hand held and be told what you should be doing every minute you are there, you'll really like it here.

    Advice to Management

    For a company that excels in micro-management, spend more time on the floor. Listen to the staff, especially concerning the supervisors and department managers. Most are complete idiots (95% of the staff will agree). Work on changing the culture of negativity Then again, why start now?
