Pros

9/80 work schedule is great and they are good at rewarding their employees with time off and company get togethers. The managers are easy to get along with and will generally help you out with things. There are lots of benefits that you recieve from the contractors. One great incentive is that you start off with 3 weeks vacation and work your way up from there. They reward you when they do well.

Cons

Pay is not comparable with others and they don't seem to be doing anything to correct that issue. Advancement in your career field is limited by who your upper management is.

Advice to Management

Increase employee's salary

    Advice to Management

    People work from incentives. Without positive reinforcement or acknowledgment of behaviors, despite outcome, that are in line with productivity and growth of the whole, moral will decline. It's not just about keeping yourselves on top. Stop expecting those below you to be happy with complacency as you shuffle management around, creating added work and strategic confusion. People want to circulate, despite whether upper management benefits they are not the only ones that should be enriched.
