    Pros

    Decent hourly wage. Generally, minimally supervised to get the job done. Overtime available, if desired. Great cafeteria.

    Cons

    Poor communication through the chain of command. Insufficient tools, documentation, resources, to address maintenance issues. Managers failed to provide needed assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and direct with your employees. Provide them the resources to achieve the company goals. Don't expect a great deal without management support behind the effort.
