    Pros

    Great benefits, that's the best part of the company. Company is growing and brands are growing fast. 401k is good and health. All good

    Cons

    Pay is horrible. Opportunities for advancement are limited. It is a who ya know politics game. Company has disconnects across the board and basics are not developed. Safety is horrible, quality teams don't talk. Computer systems don't talk to one another. If you have integrity and lime being taken advantage of this is the place for you

    Advice to Management

    Support the members of your team who actually care about the company. Recruiting and HR should try to look at individual in the company and through out the company before recruiting new hires. A lot of internal candidates are don't get support
