  1.  

    Overall very positive, I only left to pursue an opportunity outside of the company's business.

    Pros

    Great overall environment, great insurance plans, etc, discounts on products were valuable to me, may be more or less so to others. Most of senior management was very approachable.

    Cons

    Being a mid-size company, I felt that advancement opportunities were somewhat limited. Pay was below what I could have received elsewhere, however this was a position fairly early in my career, so I started below where someone with my experience 3-5 years in would have.

    Not an exciting city(Racine), Watercraft is not the place to be, should be excellent growth with time in the international world.
