    Pros

    Great people. Been there a long time. Caring, hard working. Leaders do care. Trust me. It isn't easy running a 3000 employee company in a cutthroat business.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive but management is aware and trying hard to make improvements for their people that they do care about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep always being the good people that you are.
