    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    good pay in the nuclear part of business
    descent benefits
    lots of people retiring, therefore should be jobs opening up

    Cons

    workers negative about everything
    recognition program is not consistent
    middle management not trained in supervisory skills
    employees allowed to "goof off", causing good employees to be unmotivated
    turnovers from old employee to new employee is nonexistant
    work does not flow
    groups do not work well together

    Advice to Management

    Train your middle management (first-line supervision) to lead by example and use leadership skills to lead their groups. First-line supervision and managers need to work as a unit and not contradict one another. Need to beef up IT dept and get all the work documents and work flow under one system that is easy to understand. Train your employees on basic computer skills.
