Pros

Lots of new, young, outside employed engineers about 4-6 years ago during the nuclear boom - forced change in old processes, good pay for the Pittsburgh area

Cons

Poor management that doesn't know how to work together for a common goal. Old fashioned library type atmosphere, older employees do not appreciate what new employees can bring to the industry that is in need of great change.

Advice to Management

Listen to the young and new people you brought in from the outside that you paid so much money to get - they have lots of insite even if its things you don't want to hear.
