    Pros

    Good pay
    Good benefits
    Good people (mostly)

    Cons

    Horrible work/life balance

    Do not value their employees; you will be micro-managed, your every move questioned and ultimately burned out!

    They have unions for a reason.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your leaders; you need to fix them. They are so focused on production that they forget the people who make production happen. Give people the chance to fail and learn from their mistakes, rather than punishing them for them. Seek out your top talent and do whatever it takes to keep them, rather than pushing them out with stupid policies, bad management and micro-management.
