Pros

Somewhat stable place to work, most of layoffs were in our plants but had some in corporate offices as well.
Decent pay, but definitely could make more elsewhere.
Benefits were good, but definitely got worse through the 2000s

Cons

Morale was horrible during layoffs, obviously, but even after 2005 everyone hated it there.
No real chance of moving up unless you kissed everyones a$$, so the promotions were definitely not based on work performance.
Management never praised good work, had lots of slackers there that probably got paid better than the good workers.

Advice to Management

Promote people based on performance, not on how far someone has their nose up your a$$es!!
Force middle mgmt to praise good work and discipline bad workers, seems like some people can get away with murder there and never face any consequences.
