    Good pay,benefits. the people you worked with everyday where hard working and very easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The shift work was rough at times when starting a family. Working weekends was hard to get use to.

    Advice to Management

    Over all it wasn't that bad. It was like in any work at any level, "one bad apple can ruin the whole bag".

    Pros

    Professional and Personal Growth Career Opportunities Benefits Flexibility

    Cons

    Very political environment Lean teams and compromised quality Inexperienced people leaders with no desire to lead exist in some departments

    Advice to Management

    There should be career opportunities for individuals not interested in people leader roles. People leaders should want to be in the role and not placed there due to tenure or because it's frowned upon to only want to be an individual contributor.
