    Pros

    Pay was good. Company benefits were excellent. Employee discounts were average.

    Cons

    Not interested in improving any methods. Got to stick to the plan, suggestions for improvements are taken as challenging attacks by incompetent "leaders" Stuart-Finger. Before you know you get fired for the slightest thing.
    Lots of snakes in that building, mixed with some good folks as well

    Advice to Management

    Talk to the people, especially when suddenly a valued employee is in HR being fired. That would be a good time go ask some questions! One side of story doesn't make it legit, do an investigation!
