    Pros

    Great benifits, including health dental vision and legal insurance

    Cons

    The pay for current employees is very low compaired to what other medical places offer. Starting pay was raised without raising the pay of current employees that has created a lot of tension. People who been there for years who now find themselves making less than people who just got hired this year.

    Advice to Management

    find ways to increase overall pay to exisiting employees, not just increase pay to new hires

    Pros

    They really pay employees who have been there a while pretty reasonably. The company is changing and they are hiring a ton of temps. We actually have a temp agency working out of plant. WOW!!

    Do not make any mistakes. They will be documented and you will be held accountable.
