    Pros

    Awesome benefits, great people, strong company values, meaningful work, caring co-workers, strong outlook on achieving goals, forward thinking employees, vast improvements with the hiring practices and quick turnaround time from HR/Recruiting!!

    Cons

    Growing pains, occasional disconnect from Corporate to the divisions, and the fact that we are a reactive business can make your job a bit stressful when planning.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking ahead while focusing on the day to day operations.

    Pros

    I've been able to take advantage of some great growth opportunities. Supportive atmosphere. Above average benefits package. Privately held company makes change and balance a little easier. Incredible flexibility to work with.

    Cons

    Some growing pains as the company has transitioned from small to large. I hear some complaints about work life balance but it's never been an issue for me.

    Pros

    SNC is a great company with great benefits. The owners really care about their employees, and it shows with compensation, 401k, etc. SNC is a challenging yet fun place to work with a lot of great products that make a significant impact. SNC has great social events throughout the year as well.

    Cons

    SNC runs lean and expects a lot out of their employees, this can have a significant impact on work life balance. It's not uncommon to work 70-80 hour weeks.

    Pros

    Good 401K match and benefits back in the day.

    Cons

    Good Old Boy environment, very limited career growth, impossible unless your part of the cliques that Managers only prefer to deal with instead of those that contribute far more in the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your employees on a regular basis not just when you want something, and don't pass it on to another employee that is your dream (favorite) employee to pass on the information. Poor communication at its worst.

    Pros

    Owners are generous to the employees. Very sad that they do not know the regime that is at Hagerstown they are losing good people because of it and will continue to lose more.

    Cons

    Support staff is constantly lied to about promotions. Told they will be promoted only to build them up and let them crash down. Also, SNC says they are a work life balance company and in Hagerstown they are not. Many people have been bamboozled at their review time for taking care of family members for things that were not controllable and they were not given a sufficient raise because of it.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect your support staff as they are the BRAINS of the facility. Both former and current support staff are considering filing an EEOC complaint for the disrespect they receive and the lack of recognition that goes along with it. Mainly because they are females. I was there 10 years and not once seen a female in a large leadership role. There are very few females there that have MBA's but those who do should be in management due to their intelligence and they hard loyal work
