      Pros

      If you want to work and can learn on your feet, there is plenty to do. Company does offer good paid time off and holiday schedules. Depending on the position pay is competitive or above average.

      Cons

      If you are inexperienced for the position you are hired for, you are learning by doing. Do not expect it to be explained a different way just because you did not understand it the way it was taught to you. Health Insurance plans offered are expensive for what is actually covered. HR team doesn't help with benefit issues- they just pass you to the provider and you need to figure it out for yourself. If you do not negotiate a good starting rate, they will pay you the lowest rate they can get you for. You may learn later your co-workers make far more than you and do way less. Rules only apply to whoever and whenever manager, supervisors, or higher ups want them to.

      Work here if you want to be micromanaged and have them watch your every move.

      Pros

      Great co-worker, many activities, and great benefits.

      Cons

      Terrible management, terrible HR, no support. They do not care about your well-being at all and they will let you go with a snap of a finger no matter how long you've been with the company. No royalty from these people. Anyone and everyone is disposable without a thought. Everyone in this place is a backstabber especially their management team. If you are looking to work at this place, keep your thoughts, your opinions to yourself. Sharing it to your manager or coworker is poisoning because it will make it's way to HR in a matter of seconds that could result in getting fired. More bad than good in this place.

      Witch hunt.

      Pros

      There are very good employees with great ideas.

      Cons

      Senior management has assembled a team of 'yes men/women/mistresses' that created a culture that was about anything but job performance. It is an environment more about what you look like or who you golf with as opposed to working together to move the company forward.

      Pros

      Family type atmosphere. Some perks like picnics, gifts, profit sharing. At one time was a solid, stable work environment. Great employees and supervisors.

      Cons

      Insurance benefits are terrible. Used to be run with people and customers in mind. Now it's all the bottom line of the ledger. C-level management does not listen to customers needs or provide proper resources. Hard to tell where this place will be in 5 years. A sad demise to a once great company.
