    Pros

    Benefits included generous vacation time, sick time, 2 weeks vacation upped to 3 weeks after 3 years, 4 weeks after the 4th year, and then 5 weeks the 5th year forward. 20 Annual sick days in addition, then most Jewish holidays paid, in addition to US holidays. Union membership allowed for certain positions.

    Low base pay compensation, pension eliminated, free medical/dental now an ineffective HMO that you are required to pay for. Little chance at upward mobility.

    Pay more competitive salaries to those that deserve it and offer merit increases to those same people rather than base it on who smooches the correct buttocks.

    decent paid vacation for employees who make it beyond 5 years BUT try taking the time . . .such craziness around when it is ok and when it's not

    Micro-management from the top down, seems to be more "who you know that what you know " with regard to hiring practices, antiquated systems,management's propensity to keep workers unenlightened, total lack of protocol which results in great disparity company-wide

    more movement into 21st century, value those who do the work rather than those who kiss ***
