Pros

Performance Based Bonus's
After 7+ Years Paid Time Off Accural is 8hrs a paycheck twice a month
Rotating 12 Hour Shifts

Cons

Extremely Stressful Projects where the customer is demanding and unreasonable, management does not back up or protect its employees,
Mandatory Overtime can be assigned with no prior notice
Poor Documentation and Procedures
Hostile Environment where one mistake can get you let go
Health Insurance and Benefits are slowly becoming unreasonable

Advice to Management

Need to work on the work-life balance
Stop cutting bonus's and benefits

    Dirty offices, broken furniture, substandard equipment, employees are worker bee types who won't complain yet act miserable. No innovation or progressive thinking here - even the coffee is cheap and tasteless. Barbaric!
