    Pros

    Solid company but changing fast

    Cons

    Use to be a solid company when it was family owned. Now controlled by an investment group and they have gutted the place. Just like a regular large corporate that cares about the $ over any and all workers that make the company a run of the mill business

    Advice to Management

    You are working your folks to the bone. Every cut you make you increase the existing workload onto those left and it is going to break....quality is going downhill...a recipe for disaster.

    Pros

    Good Health Care. The perks of the jobs are good. Cell phone, computer, home internet they pay for.

    Cons

    Low Pay, Low Bonus. Nothing seems to get done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Company just went public. All the employees who had money invested in the company stock all got screwed. I am sure the top Management got payed nicely, but all the middle management and the people who make the company run everyday got screwed.
