    Pros

    Good training for a better job. Clean working conditions.
    Tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Substandard compensation as compared to equivalent positions at other companies, far below the national or area averages. Raises are almost unheard of. No opportunity for advancement. If you are good at your job your supervisor will not let you move to another position because they will not be able to replace you.

    Advice to Management

    Take a serious look at your management structure. You do not need 1 president, 6 senior vice presidents, 4 vice presidents, 6 directors 12 managers and 6 supervisors to support 300 workers.
