    Pros

    Salaries are decent, position chart could be better. The way you have to move up the organizational chart should be restructured.

    Cons

    The accrual time for sick and vacation could be better; it takes a very long time to earn your two or three weeks of vacation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotes those that really deserved to be promoted to the next level.

    Pros

    Strong corporate leadership, great pay, good benefits.

    Cons

    Middle managers are allowed to play favorites for promotions & assignments. Personal strengths and abilities are often denigrated to suppress ambition & support this favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speak anonymously with you bottom-line workers. Most have been programmed to portray their Supervisors positively in fear of being black-listed. Your greatest challenge is finding out how your workers REALLY feel. Remember, a termite-ridden home looks great from the outside...
