    Pros

    This company is a great company with good values and good intentions. There are nice people to work with and good benefits.

    Cons

    Things move very slowly. There is too much "In-Crowd" nonsense. No diversity, and promotion of the wrong people.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting or keeping around people you like and start promoting people who are different than you, and will provide better ideas for the direction of this company. Get rid of the boys club.

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth. The long term outlook appears to be organically driven which provides many opportunities for promotion. High family values, good benefits, balance between work and home is promoted.

    Cons

    The business is managed from a different country. This seams to slow adaptation of technology, engineering, safety, and business practices. Company standards can be confusing depending on being directed by local or foreign managers. Hiring practices are not very stringent. Too easy to get hired and stay employed even when incompetent, present company excluded:)

    Advice to Management

    Ensure all core people are competent. From top to bottom of the organization.
