    Pros

    Generally high quality coworkers who work together to try to get things done despite barriers presented and dramas created by managers.

    Cons

    Few competent managers with management skills. Old company -- not current with technology or processes. Frustrated employees who feel like they have no voice or outlet as no one listens. Good Ol' Boys club feel to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute a review system that reaches employees of all levels instead of just managers. Review all manager's performance based on employee feedback. Embrace chcane and technology. Move forward.
