    Pros

    Great place to work and good culture
    Well respected by clients
    Good future plans

    Pros

    Fellow work mates good to work with.
    Not much more to say, 20 word minimum, Ummmmm! Only 4 words left, that's it!

    Cons

    Manager had low intelligence, went out of way to belittle every one. On some power trip, complete idiot.
    Poor facilities.
    Management inexperienced and lacked people skills.
    Career advancement blocked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some decent lower managers. Managers way out of touch with people on the shop floor. Poor leadership above supervision level.
