    Pros

    Direct managers give freedom to do work as I have seen fit. Compensation and benefits have been good. West Lafayette has been a great place to raise a family.

    Cons

    A recent upper level management change has left Great Lakes Solutions in a precarious position. No longer are employees actual people but simply a number on a spreadsheet.
