    Pros

    If you are honest, work hard, and follow directions well you can advance very quickly.

    Pros

    Decent pay, typical benefits, most coworkers are good to work with.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, disjointed projects, very little career advancement, lots of gossip- feels like high school at times.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to learn how to better delegate tasks to employees. Most managers are controlling and think they can do things better so they do it themselves, then complain they are overwhelmed.
