    - long extra hours. Need to work on Weekends without pay.
    - Lowest pay for experienced people.
    - Many people left but they don't hire for replacement. Instead makes the available once work long hours.
    - No consistent rules. Managers contradicts their own words.
    - Your day just depends on your supervisor mood.
    - You would never question your supervisor here.
    - Overall, a perfect example of companies to avoid.

    Pros

    An ok place to work if you are fresh of college and want to learn some bad corporate culture so that you would avoid it in the future.

    Cons

    bad corporate culture, no clear vision and goal, disorganized management. Employees balkanized into the old and the new crew. The old crew (some of whom have been with the company for decades) want to stick to the old way of doing things however bad it may be. If you are the kind of person who genuinely want to contribute the best of your knowledge and skills to your company, you should run from this place because you would really be disappointed by level of incompetence and lack of professional integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set clear vision and goal for the company, make a genuine effort to recognize performance, set a higher standard for yourself and your employees, Build a high performance culture at all levels.
