      A great company, squandered

      Pros

      Great work culture. Given the autonomy to contribute with your ideas and solutions. Technically satiating. Large company with large impact, but feels like a small business. Ability to gain exposure and experience in a breadth of areas as well as at multiple levels vertically. Good upward mobility.

      Cons

      CEO and board sold a thriving and improving company taking the easy way out - while walking away with their pockets full. Justification was that their “duty to shareholders” was of greater importance than duty to employees and the community of which they support. Lower salary than industry average.

      Pros

      Benefits are fantastic. Pay is decent. Lots of opportunities for overtime if you’re willing.

      Cons

      Maybe I got unlucky with the position I was put in when hired, but the other employees and myself in my department work 12 hour shifts with absolutely no break. Continuous work from the start to finish of your shift. The issue has been brought to HR multiple times but nothing is ever done. Safety is of very little concern to management. The pay is decent but the only way to make good money is to work lots of overtime. Many employees work for weeks and even months without a day off. Very high employee turn-over rate due to the above reasons. Always under staffed! The text book definition of over worked and under paid!

      Enjoyed working with staff, not so much management as they always had their own agendas

      Cons

      Lack of trust with management. They always seemed to looking out for themselves.
