    Pros

    Many friendly employees to work with, as long as you're not in the office. Though it does pay better than most places.

    Cons

    Supervisors need to take responsibility for their own actions. Stop blaming things on employees and listen to them when they have a problem. Engineers need to show more respect to other employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start hiring people who know what they are doing in the office. It's pretty bad when the General Manager can't even answer one question at company meetings because he doesn't even know what is going on in the company that "HE" works for! And they wonder why they keep losing money.

    Pros

    Good pay, good insurance, and plenty of hours.

    Cons

    Bad work/personal life balance. To much politics with everything that needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on improving productivity instead of the politics.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere and work environment, easy going co workers, most fellow employees are very helpful to the new guys.

    Cons

    The point system is extreme. You have a heart attack and leave in an ambulance, you get pointed. The amount of time it takes to gain back points is unreal.

    Advice to Management

    Learn when to know it's time to be understanding, and learn to know when it's time to be firm.

    Pros

    Great pay to start off with; good benefits. Good people (depending on the team you work with). It's a culturally diverse company, so speaking another language is a definite plus.

    Cons

    Lack of organization; very slow to process anything; no training-- you're basically thrown into cold water. Not great with their people. There are apparent organizational issues that need to be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more organization internally.
