Pros

Good pay and benefits. Good location. Time off when needed.

Cons

Management seems scared to punish specific people but have no issues punishing the whole group. Employee pay is not linked to your quality of work. They just care about numbers, numbers, numbers. No chance of moving up. Slackers continue to slack while hard working people get all the work piled on them. No performance bonus at all so there is really no incentive to work any harder than the next person.

Advice to Management

Make some tough decisions once in a while. You need to send a clear point that you only want hard workers, not people who come in for a paycheck. There are plenty of unemployed people who can do a better job than some of them here.
