    Pros

    Great benefits, training, great building and equipment, challenging job, great retirement 401 k plan and pension and bonuses when company did well in good years.

    Good healthcare, and good schools and goodvpeoplec to work with.

    Cons

    Quick conversion of management gender caused problems for some employees. Near retirement time greatly expanded job responsibilities. Overworked nights weekends working for free to get it all done.

    Advice to Management

    They should not cause stress by overloading employees more and more. Fast changes way to quick caused problems, stress, errors. Benefits used to be free but when I retired cost more and more. And less benefits.
