    Pros

    Great profit sharing plan once vested. Benefits are decent but not great, however they start right from day 1.

    Cons

    There's little to no room for upward movement from entry level positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build from within. Don't alienate your loyal employees that you've already invested in.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
