    Pros

    Company car, benefits, great co-workers and customers.

    Cons

    Middle management completely unsupportive and spend more time trying to catch your mistakes than trying to foster an environment that will help grow the company from within. Management relies on strong arm tactics and bullies those under them.

    Spend more time trying to foster a culture that will help the company grow instead of trying to find mistakes. Encourage your people and support them rather than stifle them
