Pros

Stable company with generally solid performance and few layoffs. Profit sharing paid when targets met (most years).

Cons

If you get fired, you really deserved it, but you certainly won't get rich working there. Pay and benefits lag well behind national and even regional averages. There is little differentiation in pay between top performers and underperformers - if you stick around, you're looking at 3% or less increases at most every year, regardless of what you do. Talented people constantly leave for better opportunities - many people who stay long-term are satisfied with mediocre opportunity and compensation, don't want to leave the area, or are just simply incapable of getting a better job elsewhere. If you are ambitious and seeking advancement, chances are there is a drone middle manager blocking your way up who has been there for 10 years, and will be there another 10 years after you're gone.

Advice to Management

Pay your best people at or close to what they could earn elsewhere. Stop "differentiating" your people by giving the mediocre 2% and the stars 3% raises.

    Pros

    Company is on a good path. Seems like they are really working to build a great team. I love that we have a lot of regular communication and everyone seems really positive in spite of the normal business challenges.

    I also like that there are plenty of opportunities for overtime!

    Cons

    Some of the employees are really entitled. This is supposed to be A JOB!

    Keep doing what you're doing. On a good path.
