    Pros

    Everyone is very helpful to new employees. Definitely seems like this age group is the one the site is catering to. Good for new, hungry employees.

    Cons

    After you have been there a while, the trend seems to be the employee gets overwhelmed. Work life balance is somewhat of a struggle if you genuinely want to make a difference.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to empower your employees.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits are slightly above average for the area. Good job security, there are never any layoff as employees either quit or leave the department. There has been significant turnover every year.

    Cons

    When called in to support emergent issues, or asked to stay late to support issues no over time is paid when all other departments you are working alongside are getting paid. Constantly on call for the emergency plan. Managers won't support employees, when asked for help they say they will assist you but never follow up with any requests. If you allow it they will try to bury you with endless amounts of work. Poor work life balance. There really isn't much room for advancement unless you are politically correct and are one of the chosen ones by management. Company says they foster a questioning attitude however whenever you question a manager even if they are wrong you are labelled as difficult to work with and disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    Management should treat employees better and support them when asked for help instead of bowing to whatever the higher level managers suggest. Treat employees better and realize they have a life outside of work.

    Pros

    pay, decent amount of knowledgeable old timers, extreme job security, union job is crazy good pay and very laid back,

    Cons

    opportunities to move exist but typically one is restricted for a year or more, engineering is viewed as a free and infinite resource, non-union job is not laid back

    Advice to Management

    management should have done the job they are going to manage. Taking someone from one department and having them head another department they know nothing about is not always a good idea.
