    Pros

    Real team feeling among the associates.We really cared about each other and what needed to be accomplish.

    Cons

    Hours too long. Equipment always broke down.Expectations were sometimes too much all at once. There were times when tasks were not thought through enough and ended up being a big waste of time and salary dollars. Not enough salary dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not really appropriate at this time. The company is winding down to be closed forever.
