    Pros

    Not much other then the people you work with

    Cons

    Corporate...the management team, no recognition for doing a good job, you only hear from upper management and corporate if somethings wrong, to many chiefs who like suffocating the Indians with the bs and a workload meant for an army but they press hard on their department heads and managers to get it done by any means necessary, with little to no help, it can be stressful especially when u working hard and it goes unappreciated..your best will never be enough.

    Advice to Management

    None, just put yourself in others shoes...stop with the budget cuts and invest in your team, recognize hard work and believe in positive criticism, become a company people will fight to stay with and not the one people can't stand to wake up to go to daily because of their stress levels.

    Could cut yourself and having females taking the trash out getting hit in the head and no one cares about it not even the management
