    Pros

    Good Job not too hard, very stable for the area. They have slow and fast times mostly based on natural gas prices.

    Cons

    They'll hire ne one alot of the people they promote are fit for there position. You can't move up until someone leaves or retires and with only about 30 production employees you'll be waiting quite a while. All production employess work rotating shift if management better did they job they could moove alot of employees to 5 days a week

    Pros

    Challenging projects and satisfying assignments.

    Cons

    Is a short term career due to decling wages
    Short staffing taxes everyone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to rethink the policy of no pay raises. This fosters people turnover and/or apathy towards ones job. i.e. employees will do enough to get by but will not put the extra effort in that is typically needed for success.
