    Lots of product lines and can change product lines and locations if you desire to do so. Stuck to time off and helped with training and education as long as it pertained to job.

    Pros

    Safest safety policies I've ever seen. Flexilble hours and relaxed atmosphere. Mostly great people, politics are low.

    Cons

    So safe that it makes it difficult for competent employees to get their work done. Their anti-drug policies can force entire departments to shut down for activities you do on your own time, do not be a "pot tourist" in a legal state then come back to work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't shut down an entire department because someone smokes a joint on their own time, at least work with employees or make your judgment to terminate after an evaluation.
