    not alot of resources to motivate store associates, no break rooms, no real lunch break schedules, managers can be overworked and not paid for overtime, not alot of option outside of store or sales going through mtp, a little bit of old school mentality in regard to selecting candidates- some people in positions for the wrong reasons, certain departments are very very inefficient and hurt other parts of the company, lack of investment/attention in store associates,

    Pros

    Strong, ethical, employee dedicated Management. Great Leaders, Co-Workers, morale. Financially sound. Great advancement opportunities (no glass ceiling). Competitive compensation. Generous 401K and Pension Plan. Technical leader. Superior quality products.

    Cons

    Must be willing to innovate, work hard, maintain standards, have high morals, and contribute whatever it takes to achieve personal and Corporate goals. Not really a CON... probably key to what makes this Company great!

    Advice to Management

    Don't veer from proven strategies. Continue focus on the welfare of Employees, Customers, and Vendors.
