    Pros

    Earlier growth with the company was great. Camaraderie with colleagues and customers were very good. Company had a great employee owned concept and this concept was embraced.

    Cons

    Company no longer shared the employee owned concept. Company was split, therefore, layoffs were eminent. Company no longer cared about employee, just another big company managing the bottom dollar.

    Pros

    Co-workers are the only pros for the contract. Upper management is to busy tying to get promoted so their concerns on the worker bees are _0

    get some education on what your people really do so you can manage them properly
