    Pros

    Excellent people with a great culture. You will be hard pressed to find a company with such a great benefits package. The management works had to make sure that the employees feel they are making a difference and offer multiple opportunities for training throughout the company.

    Cons

    The downturn in prices has caused a bit of a shift in the company. There are definitely fewer perks outside of employee benefits than there once were, and there is a slight lack of communication from the upper echelons of management to the working force.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open and advance those whom you know will succeed at a faster rate. The company was once known for high levels of upward mobility, but that is one aspect that seems to have slowed in the past few years given the pricing downturn.
