    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very casual environment between employee and supervisor, potential for hands-on field experience. Able to travel around the United States and Canada. Meal, Hotel and travel compensation.

    Cons

    More reactionary when it comes to planning, poor guidance from supervisors (typically learned how to proceed through more experienced people in the same position as me). Not a very inclusive work environment, difficulty working with some people.

    I have been working at MacDon Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary and easy job... you can literally sit for hours and still get paid. Its like waiting for 8 hours to pass by. After 5 years, I feel like I'm living a meaningless life... but stil.. job is so easy even 10 year old can work here.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth.. need to drink or go fishing with bosses to get promoted. Job Hiring is subjective, not objective, I guess that's how companies promote people nowadays. Poor management, hired lots of people layed off the excess.
