    Pros

    Benefits are above average and the ESOP is a nice perk.

    Cons

    Middle-management shows favoritism towards some employees and micro-manages others. No consistency in the way they treat their "team".

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Get rid of the managers that employees complain about in departments that have frequent conflicts. Empower employees to give confidential annual reviews about their managers to upper management. If the Senior Mgmt doesn't know about the problems, they can't fix them.

    Pros

    Not a difficult job, flexible hours, decent starting pay.

    Cons

    You only get raises based on the companies bottom dollar for the year not your job performance. So if you have a mild winter most likely no raises or bonuses for anyone. They kept promising f/t but never made good on it.

    Advice to Management

    value the low men on the totem pole
