    Pros

    The interaction with co workers. The ability to work on personal development. Rewards for performance. The Ithaca location has to be one of the best.

    Cons

    You will have slightly flawed process. Customer driven procedure that can cause unnessary work requiremts. There is the potential for extended worked hours.

    Advice to Management

    Most of the management I worked with did a great job. However, it took the auto industry downfall to cause bw to look at cost reduction. Cost reduction should have been a part of day to day operations before the downfall.

    the people were great to work with.

    I liked how it was very flat and that I got the chance to work with higher level employees. Some advice would be to continue that structure in many more facilities.
