    Good company! Work hard and you will be rewarded. Good work teams.

    Cons

    Executive managers focus too much on stock holders rather than running the company.

    Invest in the company and its employees and stock holders will see better returns.

    Pros

    Had a good pay scale and was a team oriented place. They really cared about their employees and helped to improve quality of life any way they could.

    Cons

    If you wanted to advance within the company there wasn't a lot of opportunity. To work in the support area you had to either travel or move to Cleveland so not real convenient.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for employees to grow within the company.

    Pros

    Great growing company that treat their employees right. Flexible and fun work environment. Senior management is approachable listen to feedback from employees.

    Cons

    I can't really think of many right now. Some areas have highly tenured employees who are too comfortable and struggle with staying on task. This projects poorly to newer employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and stay aggressive going after additional business opportunities.
