Pros

Very intimate work environment for a large company. Impressed with the management team.

Cons

Like everywhere else, there is less and less concern for employees and more concern for the bottom line. Great management team with good ideas, but team leaders and "mentors" responsible for training really have little experience with training. In their defense, they are expected to carry out their own normal responsibilities AND train new employees. They are spread very thin. It is a high pressure job which involves managing what are often times less than desirable employees.

Advice to Management

Implement a "real" training program for new operations employees. Mentors and team leaders need "training" on training! Just because and employee is good at their job doesn't mean they have the skill set to train others.
