    Pros

    Very casual work environment. Casual dress code and all the M&Ms you can eat

    Cons

    Very poor middle management. Poor scheduling practices. Never knew schedule a week ahead of time. Always short handed because they could not retain staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management training for supervisors and middle management. Putting the right people in the right positions and losing the ones that are doing more harm than good for the company.

    Pros

    Good benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    Pay based on who you know not what you know.
    I worked there for almost 3 years and in that time there were two big sweeps of firing people just to hire new employees.
    Poor management with very little skills

    friendly co-workers

    Pros

    Co-workers are friendly to one another for the most part. Time off is readily available for family functions or personal time. Facilities are nice.

    Cons

    A lot of miscommunication or conflicting information given from management. Micro-management seems to be the trend. no one person can make any kind of decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistant communication would be nice. Allowing employees to make decisions in day to day transactions without having to consult with a manager would be a very good thing here.

    Pros

    It's close to where I live. My manager is very flexible.

    Cons

    No 401k match. Mandatory volunteering with no pay. Minimal pay. Treatment by management of hourly employees. No bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your employees want and need. They are the backbone of the company. Don't make decisions that only help management line their pockets.
