    Pros

    I enjoyed working with so many wonderful people

    Cons

    Little training offered
    Little opportunity for advancement
    Management is out-of-touch and incapable of making improvements
    Morale is terrible and has been for years with no sign of improving

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management in Houston: Make a clean sweep of the managers of every department. Especially human resources since it is their incompetence that allows them to continue to hire people who are not qualified to fill their positions.
