    Pros

    Flexible schedule for family. Safe, clean working environment. Employees taken care of. Employees get a bonus almost every year as long as the division had a good year.

    Cons

    Hard to move up in the company. Lots of changes in the company right now and that makes employees nervous about their future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your employees and reward the hard workers. There are some people who don't seem to work as hard or care as much as others.

    Advancement, Shady Management and Shady business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the talent in the people that you have. Do not let people who are qualified sit around and do below their potential, while you let those who are unqualified or cannot handle things move into positions. Also recognize that everyone is different-- some people work more efiiciently than others. Also, provdie opportunities for challenges if your employee states that is what they need. Otherwise, you will continue to lose valuable people just as you have been.
