      It is what you make it.

      Pros

      Flexible. Latest technology such as laptops, cells, PDAs, VPN and teleconf tools make working from home or remotely an option when "home" demands such. Generally adequate opportunities for moving about the company if you understand the system and big picture necessary to properly position oneself for eligibility. Small administrative HQ gave family feel. Easy to make good (or bad) impression in one's favor. Great benefits. Location makes for decent commute from all directions with alternate routes available in times of bad traffic, construction.

      Cons

      HR completely biased toward upper management. Pay scales uneven. Not "fitting in" doesn't seem generally favorable. Not enough genuine diversity. Pay for experience over education could be better balanced.

      Pros

      great benefits (tuition reimbursement), good pay, there is good opportunities to cross train, and they often take your opinions when you give suggestions.

      Cons

      employees and even supervisors can be very catty, and for that reason I ended up disliking my job and felt I needed to move on.

      Pros

      Great Benefits, 4 Weeks Vacation, Paid Parental Leave, Holiday Pay, Charity Days

      Cons

      Work Life Balance - They try to preach this however, it isn't all that feasible in the manufacturing industry, especially if you work in the plant where we need to run 24/7.
