    I have been working at Barksdale full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked at Barksdale for over 10 years and I feel very fortunate to be part of Barksdale and Crane. People come and go, but those who stay are the ones that make this environment a great place to work. We all have bad days, but overall the positive defeats any negative energy. Company functions/meetings bring positive energy and makes us feel proud to be part of this team.

    Cons

    Turnover has been challenging and replacement challenging as well. I remain very hopeful. Office looks old and worn, needs upgrade.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more with the each employee (overall), get to know people by name, always greet people you see; we all like to feel acknowledged, have after hour fun functions. This will boost morale and maybe have more employee retention.
