Pros

Regular workers are nice
Relaxed environment
Lots of challenges
Many problems to solve (fire drills)
Lots of incompetence makes good employees look great!

Cons

Management is lost and clueless, they have no understanding of the business
Workers do the job that they're told to do but don't know why they are doing it
Competent folks get dumped on

Advice to Management

Make managers accountable for understanding the business and then require that they share that knowledge with the workers. Listen to the folks that understand the business...

    Pros

    it's an interesting environment union focused and union owned, with mostly good people. the senior management team was really trying to improve this company, despite the uphill battle.

    Cons

    union orientation. while i won't say unions are bad institutions, much of the unflattering stereotypes seem to be based in truth. the politics can be overwhelming - internal and external.

    Advice to Management

    keep pressing on. the company came a long way in the last 5 years, but it still has a long way to go to be a great company.

    Pros

    Their mission. Helping union workers is an admirable reason to be in business.

    Cons

    The union leadership gets way too many perks over the rank and file members. They are afforded claim payments that "normal" members don't get. Senior management has been overhauled recently, but is still too bloated and full of friends of friends. The top spot is a hold over from the "Enron" like scandal that was uncovered in 2002.

    Advice to Management

    The company was founded to support the efforts of union members to get and maintain affordable health coverage, life insurance, and financial stability that their employers refused to grant them. They are the only people that should be served, not the leaders of those organizations that are enriching themselves at the expense of those memebers.
