    Pros

    Good pay for the region.
    Decent work life balance

    Cons

    Murky standards by which your performance is measured.
    No empowerment - very much a "yes-man" work environment
    Terrible management. Its Comprised of individuals who either due to lack of interpersonal skills or of mobility ( deep roots in the area) cannot leave. They seem angry a lot of the time, lack vision, bitter and just generally unhappy. In turn this leads to a toxic work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower your employees. Many on the ground level are extremely hard working, talented people who if given the chance can come up with idea to save the company a lot of money.
    Live up to your corporate creed of "Candid Communication" instead of creating an atmosphere where honest communication is discouraged.
