    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Can't really think of one right now except it's a steady paycheck

    Cons

    Work life balance. Micro management in service department to the extent morale sucks. Severely understaffed in the service department. No passion. Everyone has worked there for so long and afraid to challenge the status quo. "That's just the way it has always been" mentality. No one willing to change to improve. Talks about being around for 80 years like customers care. No vision of future except CNG which is not the future. Not customer focused, more stock holder focused.

    Advice to Management

    Change the company culture
