    Pros

    Nothing at all. Working in a forced labor camp would be better.

    Cons

    Company treats people like cattle. Unless you are a pal or crony. Then you can break every rule and sop in the book and even get promoted for it.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say, like talking to a box of rocks. They don't care one bit. Employees mean nothing.
