    Pros

    decent pay but the health care is going downhill. the pension is nice that's about it. do not recommend working here for long.

    Cons

    incompetent supervisors, vindictive management, ungrateful upper management, unnecessary employee write ups, pay is frozen while upper management take 5% increases

    Learn how to manage effectively. Your do as we say not as we do attitude does not work and promote supervisors who actually know what is going on.

    Pros

    Job security and decent pay for the work you do. If you can keep your mouth shut and do what your told you have a 50/50 shot at management not getting on your back.

    Cons

    Very few opportunities for advancement and few reasons to even want to advance. Zero incentive to do anything above and beyond your duties.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to treat all employees the same and treat them with the same respect you would want for yourself.
