    Pros

    Great hours, if your willing to work 84 hours a week give or take, Great benefits, and Competitive pay

    Cons

    Long hours, no time for family, exhaustion, most superiors are completely ignorant, very stressful at times, and in areas it can reach over 120 degrees

    Advice to Management

    The points system is too strict, the hours are too long, when employees make suggestions to team leaders they get blown off, and every team lead thinks he knows more than the employee who spends literally half their life working at what they do

    Pros

    A lot of good people and good teamwork. Advancement is available for those that are driven.

    Cons

    Few "perks" for salaried personnel. It can be easy for salary people to fall into the trap of working extra hours. Micro-managing runs rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people for the hard work that they do. There are people that have dedicated many hours away from their families for the benefit of ALM and when annual raises come around, they do not feel appreciated.
