    Pros

    Good benefits, different shifts available, the work is relatively easy but can quickly become 'mindnumbingly' routine.

    Cons

    lack of opportunities to be upwardly mobile. when a job posting comes out, you are competing against at least 10-15 people (sometimes as many as 30-40 people) because many tenured people are desperate to move up. final decisions on candidates seem to be based on who you know, not education or experience. many quality people have left the company because they just can't get ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value your employees, not just because it increases your bottom line, but because it is the right thing to do. look at your pay scale and be more generous with compensation-this is a million/billion dollar company but you cry 'poor mouth' whenever employees ask for more than a 3% raise. take a hard honest look at your supervisors-some of them have no business managing people.

    Pros

    Generally collaborative culture. Focused direction improving with new management. Compensation good.

    Cons

    Business skills among decision-makers is not what it should be. Accountability systems not in place, so promotions and advancement are largely not skills and achievement based but network based. Really hard to get anything done. Worse than other companies of its size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen the value to consumers.
