Pros

Friendly supportive staff. Cordial work environment. Upper management followed company rules so if you read the rules you knew what was expected of you.

Cons

We had to pay for the coffee in the break room, and the policy for sick days was very, very strict. If you missed one day without a doctors note, you were docked the days salary. Seriously, who goes to the doctor for a cold or other minor illness. The result of this policy was that people came to work sick. Which got everyone else sick. Very unproductive policy.

Advice to Management

A free cup of coffee goes a long way my friend when it comes to goodwill with your employees.

    Pros

    Hardly ever any layoffs. Little oversight from a share holder board (please check for ownership type information, you would be surprised). Company funded pension + 401k. So, there is little attrition. Good town for young families. Friendly with veterans and GEDs.

    Cons

    Low attrition makes nepotism very prevalent. Families work here for 2 or 3 generations. If you don't have high school friends here, you are at a disadvantage politically. Things move in glacier time. Education is seldomly critical. Ivy League types better not apply. Very risk averse. A lot of people show up for retirement rather than work. Once you come here for 2 or 3 years, you may find you become un-marketable out there. So, if you will come here, make sure you try extra hard to stay up to date about the outside market trends.
