    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Not a bad environment to work in. Factory was improving, offices were nice.

    Cons

    High turnover. Management seems to replace everyone every couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Some listened, key ones didn't. Often listening = frustration for those that did because eventually you hit a blocker that didn't.
