    Pros

    Benefits, pay is okay and for the most part, people are decent to work with.

    Cons

    Some people that get promoted into management lack the skill set to effectively lead. Union reps don't always seem to represent the members.

    Advice to Management

    Get training on effective management skills, improve yourselves and stand up for what is right and not "go with the flow" or do things just because "that's the way it's always been done"
