    Pros

    It is interesting work that is fulfilling and purposeful. Everyone there is ready to work. They pay well for the industry. Very mature workforce.

    Cons

    Use it or lose it vacation allotment on top of one week of required vacation at the end of the year leads to two weeks of free vacation for new employees (you are granted three weeks but one week is spoken for). After 5 years you get an extra week.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! Given the size of the company I would hope that managers would be OK with employees regularly moving between jobs every couple of years.

    Pros

    A growing world wide company, with a solid vision for its customers and well being health of those customers it serves.

    Cons

    As with a lot of large company in these time, the middle management is lost, forgotten, over looked. These are the people with ideas, that aren't often heard or asked for input. Work life balance is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    Get out from behind your desk, remember were you came from, and the ones who make your jobs and life easier everyday. Your mid-management team.

    Advice to Management

    I love this company, they give you every opportunity to move up within the company. the employees is like your second family, managers are great when it comes to helping and there is always positive energy while working. Plus! overtime is not mandatory but the company offers lots of OT which I like.
