Pros

Upward mobility for those willing to transfer and work hard to prove their worth. Also, typically a Monday-Friday job with limited nights and weekends!

Cons

60 hour work weeks are easy to do on a regular basis to keep ahead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There needs to be more district support in audits, safety, finance and HR and less that unit managers are expected to accomplish well and still have a personal life.

    Pros

    Mostly a monday through friday work week. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Many, many. A few are: When a weekend event takes place, at any unit in the area, as a manager, you are considered "free labor" so you have to work without any compensation. The shrinking business segment results in shrinking opportunities. Once you reach a certain level, which is not that high, there is really no where else to go. Because we pay our hourly people so little, it is difficult to keep a full staff. Manager raises occour annually and never exceed a 2% increase. The raises are therefore less than inflation, while insurance rises every year. Not all financial performance information shared with even unit managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow some balls.
