    Pros

    pay, benefits, leadership, commitment to family and education, commitment to health, safety, environment and people. Initiative in community programs is second to no one

    This site is a very hazardous environment to work in. The chemicals on site are probably some of the worst on the planet and not to mention the radiation from the uranium is very high at times.

    Advice to Management

    Listen a little more to your employees who are doing the work. Also keep an open mind when it comes to change.
