  1. Who would like to work for a company that doesn't follow its own standards?

    Pros

    Full time benefits okay... but for the price you pay, they better be.

    Cons

    Many people in managerial positions only care about their job, and will do anything to keep it, including blaming others for mistakes made. No raises for past 3 years, last raise was less than 2%. It seems that Managers don't care about the staff, paying them as little possible (minimum wage) and expecting them to do work way over their pay grade.

    Advice to Management

    Pay staff more than minimum wage, when others in the same organization make over $200,000 a year, I think the organization can pay better than minimum wage for what is expected.


  2. They tend to not value loyalty or take much care in hiring management making it not a great place to work.

    Pros

    Easy to get hired, valuable training, good company values.

    Cons

    Poor management, low low pay for qualifications, and not very even in enforcement of company policy regarding employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to take more care in who they hire for on-site management and provide more feedback to lower management or more management training.
