    Pros

    I've worked at this company for just under 10 years. I've had good leadership and opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Pay is awful. The company doesn't compete with what other companies pay. They low ball big time. If you get a promotion, you get peanuts. The longer I've been here the worse the benefits and the more out of pockets costs employees incur.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying people what they're truly worth. The worker bees get paid way under what other companies pay, while leadership reap all the benefits
