No opinion of CEO

Pros

the people whom i worked with were great good employees ,but you wouldnt know this by the raises

Cons

they dont care about your family time or things that sometime come up an you have to miss a day. the care more about the product than the people

Advice to Management

production is good it makes you money, so you should give better raises to employees, an remember they have families
