    Pros

    Solid pay, management treats everyone with respect, and there are good opportunities for promotion if you're willing to work for it. Most people have great work/life balances at this company.

    Cons

    The benefits have taken a hit in recent years, but are overall still market competitive. You won't get significant pay raises unless you move up.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees and in their development so that there isn't a "brain drain" when more senior managers leave/retire.

    Pros

    Our on-site managers were great and the environment was very friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Corporate makes their own rule, and sometimes they don't consider how "we" feel as an employee, although they claimed so.

    Recent change in corporate leadership has the field team wonderering if their job is secure.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the foundation of this company. treat your people like family not a number. The original founder would be very disappointed in your actions.

    Pros

    Great mix of people. Fast paced work makes the day go by. Immature people makes work pretty entertaining. Enough to get by for now....

    Cons

    New management only cares about the bottom line, previous management would at least come out and make a effort to communicate and show some interest in the teammates. People can't follow simple SOP'S, makes the daily work load more difficult. Believe in hard work? Don't waste your energy, management likes to promote average teammates with no drive or heart. Leaving those teammates who put in the energy and work on the back burner. You want a job to just collect a check this is it, if you think your work ethic will help you grow within "the company" your mistaken. Enjoy working in a stressful environment because people are oblivious and flat out lazy apply within.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. Treat your good teammates better.
