    Pros

    Great Supervisors
    Lots of perks like catered lunches, pizza parties
    Great benefits and 401K match
    Stock options

    Cons

    Seniority based company. May take years to get to day shift.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people from outside the company who can bring in new ideas. Most of the employees have worked there for 30+ years or are interns that got hired. The 30+ year employees have not been exposed to what other companies are doing and the interns have not experienced it either.
