    Pros

    Old fashioned 70's atmosphere but great benefits. They really try to retain their employees and consultants. Major SAP environment and opportunities to go overseas for training. Even in a lay-off situation they try to place their employees in various positions. They have a Union that represents and fights for their employees. There is a Company picnic every summer, and opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Nothing bad at all but can you add some interior design to the building.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing it's all good!

    Lots of Projects to work on, so u are not bored. If u run out of something to do, all you need to do is inform your supervisor and you will definitely be flooded with opportunities to learn. Work life balance is great at the technological center, cant say for the plant though.

    No cons. calm atmosphere, laid back employees, friendly.
