    I worked at Aurora Casket full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    If you need a job, are under-employed, or fresh out of college, Aurora Casket is the place for you.
    Good launching pad to your real career.
    Great, company doctor.
    Free medical (after you pay for it)

    Cons

    Declining Market
    Nepatism and years of "old boy" management has left Aurora Casket unprepared to do business in the 21st century.
    You will work very hard for the money you earn.
    You will not be promoted.
    Upper management does not have the talent needed to turn around years of declining sales.
    Owned by a private equity firm, who will sell Aurora eventually.
    Will only pay employees half the average salary of comps.
    Detaining and condescending management.
    (Had 3 job offers at double the salary after 1 month of looking)

    Advice to Management
