    Pros

    Good team of employees and management.

    Cons

    A lot of equipment issues coupled with an extremely hot environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running on so many weekends and take the downtime to properly PM the equipment. Same things break down multiple times a day, day after day leading to frustration and lack of productivity.
