    Pros

    Keurig Coffee System - yummy coffee at your fingertips!
    Great Christmas Party
    Monthly activities for employees

    Cons

    Managers are power hungry
    Lack of flexibility
    Not family friendly work environment
    Inept bonus plans
    Good Ol' boy system at work
    Merit increases unfairly distributed

    Advice to Management

    follow the path of the turnover and it will lead to managment issues - severe, unaddressed, management issues. in many cases, managers have full power over who gets promoted, who gets salary increases, and how merit is distributed. In my department, there were gross salary inequities and those issues were raised, but ignored. there were numerous complaints about our manager's lack of flexibility and harsh and unpredictable attitude and communication style...again, that was ignored. Employees are frustrated and fed up to the point that they are leaving in extremely high numbers.
