    I have been working at Milwaukee full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large city, many locations to work for/with.

    Cons

    Too many employees just don't care and those that are the worst seem to get promoted to management.

    Advice to Management

    Put some thought into your job and how you treat your employees. Maybe take a little pride in where you work and what you do. Milwaukee used to be a good place to live and work, not anymore.

    I have been working at Milwaukee full-time

    Pros

    Job Security, Pension, deferred compensation program.

    Cons

    Not what it used to be. Whining co-workers, that watch you, and cry to the boss when you are not working. Management has their butt kissers, that can do no wrong. Promote to their hand picked pets. The ones that have been there the longest, and know the operation, get denied constantly !! Morale at all time low, and gets worse every day !!!

    Advice to Management

    STOP MICROMANAGING EVERYTHING !!! Don't you have enough of your own work to do ???
