    Pros

    Decent pay (but if you are not overtime eligible, you will work too many hours), good benefits

    Cons

    Everything else. Overworked, new generation of leaders are inexperienced and inefficient . Favoritism is prevalent, and management spends most of their time on the internet while expecting their staff to do all the work. So thankful to be free of this company!

    Advice to Management

    Take a close look at the Directors. Check their work and personal internet usage during work hours. Pay attention to what is going on at the Corporate level. This company used to be a wonderful place the work and continues to digress. Every person who leaves has felt the same. Stop the favoritism and hire experienced department heads . Watch how little work your top paying folks are doing!
