    Pros

    Co-Workers were great people who truly care!

    Cons

    Company lacks the ability or leadership to move forward to the 21st century. Systems and process are over 20 years old tech. Instead, they throw people at problems, then lay them off once or twice a year as a replacement method from actually performance managing and rewarding top performers. High lack of mentorship, lack of job progression, focus or career path.

    Advice to Management

    get the stomach to centralize your systems, instead of wasting money on band-aids, performance manage your employees, and eliminate waste and manual effort. You would make more money in the long run.
