    Pros

    - The Company is great for young graduates.
    - Excellent continuing education program.
    - Pension, after 5 years you get vested.
    - Allows you to make mistakes and learn on the job.
    - Allows numerous moves within the company to unrelated positions.
    - Great heating and air conditioning.
    - People are generally happy. A lot of laughter.

    Cons

    - On surface very friendly, go deeper and its all who you know. People are related: husbands/ wives/ children, girlfriends & boyfriends or they have known each other for 30 years. Be careful who you talk with.
    - Management is weak and bends backwards to the whims of City of Philadelphia.
    - Serious union issues. No pay raises for management employees for 2 years and union got them.
    - Unequal distribution of work, responsibility and pay.
    - Promotions and Salaries based upon seniority.
    - Intense Micromanagement
    - Clock in / out. No trust.
    - Very much a "male" company.
    - Buildings are falling apart. Grime. Toilets flood. Infestation.
    - Very low salaries. (IT is 30% lower than norm.)

    Advice to Management

    - Too many VPs and Directors.
    - Manage the business. Do not let someone else dictate you.
    - Face the reality.
