    great discount
    competitive wages
    great heritage of company brand name

    Cons

    alot of political favorings like many companies, play a lot of favorites
    company in a very unstable time right now, lots of layoffs,shaky from corporate
    constant changes of schedule, hard to balance with personal life
    unclear directions coming down from top, very unrealistic for resources given
    constant change of expectations of jobs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a very good staff for the most part, show more apprecitation of that in a sincere way.
    Tone of reviews and corrective actions given to people often very harsh and done publicly, while others do the same activities with little said. More advace planning needed to make directions happen in a smooth way, be more realistic in demands given. Offer better incentives to those who do perform.
