    Pros

    The benefits couldn't be beat. Health insurance and all of that was unbelievable at times. In that aspect we were definitely spoiled.

    Cons

    Communication was terrible. We never really knew what was going on at any given time.

    Also, the red tape was exhausting. Most of the time you could never get a straight answer from anybody because everybody was waiting on everybody else. You ask... "WHAT??? That doesn't make any sense"... EXACTLY... The red tape was so bad that I'm surprised it didn't spontaneously manifest itself and cover the buildings...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your people. There were so many times that we were in "No Man's" land because there was such a lack of communication. Especially when things were going public, the first place some of heard it was on the Nightly News.
