    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees. When a company profits 200million dollars a year and lays off 100 people for 2 weeks before Christmas that's called greed.

    Pros

    lots of hours and decent medical

    Cons

    Safety hazards everywhere, the company fails to raise pay to meet competitive wages with current employees. Work 12 hours with no breaks, work 7 days with no day off but management has theirs? There is no work-life balance. Now management is creating too many rules and the new supervisors and running power hungry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to respect people who work for you and talk to them with that respect. Even though we work like robots, we don't need to be treated like them as well.
