    Pros

    Flexibility in taking time off for personal business. Friendly atmosphere. Good pay.

    Cons

    Overall, it is a good old boy company. Most of those in management are not qualified to be there. Review system is terrible in that you have someone reviewing you that doesn't even know your work ethics. If there is a personal bias against you, you will soon find yourself in the unemployment line. Most former associates who were let go with a "rehire status" are not hired back regardless of how many open positions they apply for. Their applications are never even considered.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your associates with the same respect you desire. There are some good people in leadership positions, but some end up going along with the bad in order to keep their jobs.

    Pros

    Flexible hours and ability to work from home.

    If you work hard and know what you are doing, people will notice.

    People are great. Many managers are also good leaders and care about their employees.

    Cons

    A lot of talent has left and we are finding it really hard to replace it.

    Upper management does not always have it's act together.

    Slow to move and get things going. This really hurts innovation.
