    Pros

    Great place to work if you are a married, middle-aged, white male

    Cons

    Gross repeat EEOC violations. Micromanagement and hostilities directed at female office employees routinely. Terminations of same group right before 5 year (pension) mark regardless of job performance and evaluations. Do not file a disability claim or take a stand on fairness, because you must do as you are ordered or be shunned from the kingdom forever!

    Pros

    - Very good benefits - Provide Retirement benefits i.e. pension after 5 years of service - IT infrastructure is relatively current

    Cons

    - IT management lacks proper IT experience - Doesn't have flexible work environment (i.e. 1 or 2 day work from home) like modern IT department/company.

    Advice to Management

    - Should invest much more in IT to get proper competitive advantage - Instead of depending on the external consultants, should develop internal talent for long run benefits

    Pros

    As a foreman you get a truck. There are some perks like you get to work while others sit at home in winter time.

    Cons

    Key management are self serving lying hypocrites. Good managers just fall in line to keep their jobs. There is a throw everyone under the bus to get the attention off of you mentality throughout the entire division that poisons everything.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why there is a high turn over rate. Look at the common denominator, its not the employees.

    Pros

    They have great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance. Management is dysfunctional. The cannot keep a Sales/Use Tax Manager. Reason, upper management. They give you vacation, but you're not allowed to use it.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your Tax Management - there is a reason why you can't keep good people.
