    Pros

    Easy, fast pased job with good pay and good benefits.
    Advancement within the company is fairly easy anf doesnt take long. Raises every 6 months upon satisfactory review

    Cons

    Hard to get used to the 12 hour rotating shifts.
    Company has a corporate attitude to it, money matter and the little people dont.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more to your experienced workers, the ones that have been there longer than 6 months. They know how to getbtheir jobs done correctly and efficiently. A bunch of the newer employees aren't used to the work pace or duties and complain and are being catered to. The have an attitude of, work less..complain more..and everything gets handed to them for it

    Pros

    Good environment, safe and stable. Gain share is nice and 401k match is great. People are friendly everywhere you go. The bar for success is pretty low.

    Cons

    Too risk averse, difficult to get direction from leadership. Decisions seem reactive. Lack of turnover from middle management leads to lack of opportunities for ambitious employees. Long term employees are complete barriers to progress.
