    Pros

    Room for advancement, don't need much of an education to work there.

    Cons

    Employees are inhumane towards the animals, the supervisors do nothing about it. Many regulations are broken. The health insurance is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on the lower level management (ie. Barn supervisors,etc). They show favoritism as well as allow employees to abuse the animals. Very inhumane, they know when they are going to be inspected and they "clean-up their act" at the last minute.
