    Pros

    Excellent family-oriented company. Great for parents. Flexible with hours / work schedule. Encourages socialization among employees with company luncheons and happy hours. A great company to work for if you have the right personality and attitude, but it's definitely not for everyone. Amazing bonus opportunity (but not always guaranteed) and good benefits program.

    Cons

    Highly competitive and the same people get recognized over and over again. Takes a long time (years) before you are fully accepted into the "tribe" of Gowan, but once you're in you're golden. Salaries are not always the greatest, typically much lower than industry average. Raises are very, very small and far between. Negotiate well before agreeing to accepting an offer. Very cliquey social groups.

    Advice to Management

    Greater appreciation for ALL employees, not just your 'darlings' or 'stars' of the company. Every position is vital for survival, treat them like they are (at least try.) Better salaries. Otherwise, good job.
