    The good people are trying to get away. Leaving the others to fend for themselves

    Pros

    Good entry level job for someone with a career change or looking to change industries.

    Cons

    Old school, still run like a mom and pop company from the 80s. Backward looking rather than proactive and.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the advice of your engineers, Look at your old management and old school supervisors....they are running your business into the ground. Turn the lights off at night. Hire from the outside.
