    I am not thrilled with the location, but the pros outweigh this.

    Pros

    competitive salary, bonus plan good benefits opportunity for the "right" people to move up good mineral assets

    Cons

    a lot of micromanagement, even into the small stuff poor morale although many people do get chances to move up, it helps to be French

    Advice to Management

    Top management does a good job with the big picture, but needs to leave the implementation to the local management. Too much interaction in the day to day transaction takes valuable time away from allowing local management to tackle the strategic issues.

    Pros

    Most employees friendly and work well in teams.

    Cons

    If you are foreign born you will have much more opportunity for advancement and perks not offered to others. Upper mgmt. makes decisions without input or consideration from those actually working the job. Long hours are expected. Medical plans were expensive with not good coverage. You keep hoping things will improve, then realize nothing is "fair" in the environment and you need to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Create a place on the intranet for employees to go to with basic benefit, holiday, HR related forms. It was very chaotic trying to obtain information. When anything major is going to be changing get input from ALL level of the employees involved. so you have a complete perspective.
