    Pros

    Industry is doing well right now, so job security is not a great concern at this time. There are some good people here but they are disappointed with management. They are merely collecting a paycheck with no heart or spirit behind their jobs. No other positives.

    Cons

    This is the most unprofessional company I have ever worked for. Constant reorganization due to upper management political games creates disillusionment for lower and mid-level employees. Unless you are a Caucasian, your chances for leadership positions and/or promotions are extremely limited in this "good-ole boy" organization. Promotions are based on who you know rather than skills and qualifications. And because leadership positions are based on who you know rather than what you know, systems and processes are broken as most management tends to be incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating minorities like second-class citizens. This is not the pre-Civil Rights Era. Promote employees based on qualifications, not race and/or who they know. Make a concerted effort to eradicate politics so that the well-being of employees can be enhanced.
