    Unethical.

    Pros

    The savings plan is actually phenomenal. Benefits arent the best but still decent.

    Cons

    Camp is in very poor condition. Most of the time we can smell the human waste leaking from the container throughout the entire camp. Meals are always extremely bare/limited and awful. Heavily restricted recreational abilities. Awful bonus structure that is well below industry average. No wage increases or cost of living increases for as we are told company survival. Very, very poor training and asset management. Last con would be hearing upper level managements claim to no layoffs as 'we'll make their lives so miserable they'll just quit.'
