    Pros

    Limited competition, high product margins. All divisions run differently, pay is ok, since they have a hard time getting good technical people to travel to the middle of no where, MA

    Cons

    Growth is limited, wages remain the same (no increases), technical talent is limited (lots of engineers with HS education), turn over is huge as good people run after the first year.

    Advice to Management

    Brake up the good all boys club. Get the directors to get up from their desks, educate the engineers with latest management techniques, compensate the people that accomplish the work.
