    great team work, overall good compensation

    Cons

    structure of departments are poor and confusing. Too many tasks under one persons title. They need to have better training of new employees.

    look at your managers and supervisors. Just because they've worked there for 25 years or more & got a bachelors degree, does not mean they are qualified to be managers or supervisors!
