    Pros

    Small company where you can make a name for yourself. Growing company that has many jobs to choose from if you're willing to take initiative.

    Cons

    Not always about the work you do but if your managers like you or not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    New location for the company, so they have plenty of openings. Lots of hours for overtime. Good opportunity for entry level office work.

    Cons

    Hours are inconsistent. Since location is new, work can be hectic. Due to scheduling inconsistencies, what should be an 8-9 hour day can turn into 10-12 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more hands on regarding the training.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Team oriented.

    Cons

    Salary is way below market. They have a performance review process that is more detailed than sending someone to the moon. Not a real motivator.
