Pros

Flex time available. Payroll is knowledgeable. Legal has some good people. Help-desk is helpful. Compliance is watchful. Safety is a priority.

Cons

Stock price has not risen in years, everything senior management has tried seems to go south, raises and bonuses promised but not delivered in 2-3 years, starting salaries low. There seems to be a "If you don't like it, then leave mentality." Slim-to-no chance of promotion and no career path available.

Advice to Management

Promote from within instead of constantly bringing in new people. Chart out career paths and encourage everyone to educate themselves. Stop rewarding upper management for its inept decisions. Deliver on your promises or more good people will leave.

    Pros

    Best reasons to work here is the flexibility and understanding.

    Cons

    Some lack of communication at times.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe employee development should be a little more of the focus.

    Pros

    Being employed is the only pro. Having a place to report.

    Cons

    Low wages, high turnover, management not concerned with employees, do not communicate, no performance reviews unless they are trying to fire someone, I have seen some corrupt actions in a short period of time. Awful

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and care about them.
