    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Great people in the trenches. Historically, a fine old family-owned/run business that cared for its people.

    Cons

    Current CEO is there to gut and sell off the business units for a quick profit.

    Advice to Management

    Your words say, "we care", to the employees....Your actions speak louder. Walk the Talk.

    Pros

    Normally good for work/life balance. Many competent people. Highly ethical and safety oriented.

    Cons

    Constantly going through change and resizing, even when profitable. Makes for an unnecessarily stressful environment. Latest leadership seems geared to sell many of the businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Damage has mostly been done.
