    Pros

    Most employees dont realize how good they really have it. You can go as far as you want ...just takes motivation...great company that takes care of you in so many ways

    Cons

    The employees that feel entitled and feel that just showing up is all they have to give the company..the drama they create for the people that show up to work

    Advice to Management

    Most of you that came from the field need to remember where you came from ....how you felt on the other side. What it took to take care of your families. You still have a lot of guys that enjoy working so please don't treat us the same as the guys that take advantage of you and the system
