    Pros

    Management does whatever it takes to please the consumer. Good advancement for college grads. Company is run financially tight.

    Cons

    Management doesn't back their employees and always looking over everyone's shoulder. Benefits are sub par and pay raises are very few and very small. Management always has something to hide.

    Advice to Management

    The employees built this company up and they should be respected for that.

    Pros

    Steady work, decent pay, good benefits

    Cons

    No where to move up, company expects you to do the same job for entire career. If you do get promoted you receive a pay decrease.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring people straight out of college to take entry level management roles, reward your employees who have been there and dedicated themselves to your company. It’s not 1950 anymore people want the opportunity to move up with a company and better themselves.
