    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to get hands-on and get experiences if you're willing to put in the work. People are friendly and generally willing to help. Corporate office is beautiful and promotes work-life balance.

    Cons

    Many technologies are outdated. At the plant level, the cultural and mentality is still very old-school which can be frustrating for a young professional in his/her 20s. 11 vacation/sick days total for the first 5 years is not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Needs to take more concrete and tangible steps towards managing change. Trial and error doesn't always work for everything.
