    Pros

    Flex time and pto are two benefits of working here. They do have fun and a handful of events during the year.

    Cons

    Issues are mentioned and there is never a resolution. It feels taking anything to HR is pointless. The company as a whole has so many gaps in communication between departments things get done 2-3 times over. There are little raise opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Have a sturdier support system and an HR the employees actually will go to and look up to. Fix communication gaps.

    Interesting, out of the ordinary type of industry. They expect more out of you than your salary reflects.

    Pros

    Great benefits provided with a good focus on work life balance. The work can be monotonous but the environment is structured to alleviate that.

    Cons

    The monotony of the work along with the feeling that issues just aren't ever resolved. Not much to complain about.

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers (to your face)

    Cons

    Too many immature and deceitful people. They pay low and say it is made up in benefits. A pool table and 2 ping pong tables and a small cafeteria that is overheated and crowded. These are not real benefits, especially if they insurance is not needed. In that case you are paid low and no benefits. There is an Aramark Provisions on Demand but then food is spoiled even though it is "fresh". Their idea of diversity is great when it comes to different cultures. However, these cultures need to be submissive. No questions or seen as aggressive or too confconfrontationnal.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp your supervisors and not "restructure" your hourly workers. Pay better, at least enough to live on. Hold supervisors accountable for their bad examples and untruths.

    Pros

    The scheduling and overtime was great, the breaks in between work was great, the benefits were also very favorable over other companies.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to update hardware in many of the departments, Supervisors need to be more relatable to the employees they over see. Needs to hire people that are serious instead of just chasing a dollar.
