    Pros

    The office culture and co-workers was the most pleasant aspect of working there.
    Cafeteria food was good
    JFK offers lots of training opportunities
    Benefits were decent

    Cons

    I am pretty sure the compensation here is the lowest in the state.
    All the computers and networking infrastructure are very old and slow
    Management has serious trust issues and will go to length letting the employees know there positions

    Advice to Management

    You have to increase compensation or people will leave the first opportunity they get
    Management needs to realize that they cant treat employees poorly, remember your employees left there old job to work for you and if you don't respect that they will leave you too

    You are doing well, I would include more opportunities for continuing education and making it easier to move up in company

    None that I came accross

    Advice to Management

    None
