    Pros

    Made some wonderful lifelong friends that are on the same work level as I am. The experience you recieve is rewarding and useful.

    Cons

    In the past work was very plentiful and you were allow to work as much as you need to. Some of the benefits are not as great as they use to be. Morale is poor. Communication between lower management and employee is extremely poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to take a concern interest in lower management decisions. Overall management needs to listen to the concerns and opinions of the employees that are out in the field.

    Great upward potential due to older demographics, manufacturing mentality, and much lower comparative pay and benefits.

    Pros

    Older demographics leave lots of room for fast upward growth by hardworking Gen Xrs and Gen Y'rs. Management is honest and hardworking.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits comparatively lower to most other industry peers. Ultra conservative, old school company does not embrace change well or fast enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to effect change, it needs to be enabled through grass roots efforts that are embraced and enforced by Senior mgmt. Pay is not sufficient to compete against your competition. Benefits, especially health care and 401K are lackluster at best, and HC benefits continue to decline in value. Take care of your people, and they will take care of you.
