    Pros

    They did have a good vacation/time off policy. Pay was decent as well.

    Cons

    Just about everything else is a con here. They entrusted one of the departments to a big headed egotistical moron. I suggest if you land in this department to get out ASAP. Trust no one here. This place has gone through several changes in ownership last few years. They are bunch of old folk that been here forever and are clinging to their jobs and will do anything to stay. There are a few nice people here but genuinely you have to watch yourself. You cannot suggest anything as they will take it that you are complaining. Even if its a genuine suggestion. They will monitor your bathroom breaks. Everything that you do will be scrutinized under a microscope. If you attempt to defend yourself you will be written up. I suggest you avoid this place.

    Advice to Management

    This place needs new blood. Needs to be completely evaluated and reworked. Some of the old mangers needs to retire or replace. Take some feedback from employees once in a while. Act on those suggestion once in a while.

    Pros

    Many wonderful, knowledgable, and talented people. Good company and benefits.

    Cons

    Senior management feels the need to be in absolute control. Big micromanagers. Do not know how to communicate. Very heavy workload in the summer, slow rest of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Trust employees to do their job. Do not be so regimented and by the book. Show a concern for employees as people not as dates on a schedule. Stop making mountains out of mole hills.
