    Pros

    Good benefits. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Upper management makes big promises then fails to deliver. Very hostile place for those trying to evolve. Seems to be some weird prejudice happening where only non El Pasoans are promoted/recognized, added bonus if you're white. You never know when you're going to be fired despite doing your job well or having seniority. They fire vital people out of nowhere then refuse to replace them so those who remain see their workload...

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at your priorities. You're giving the people who are inept and cruel all the power while your most loyal workers are kicked aside . You've lost almost half the people over the past 2mos in some depts. Ask why that is.
