    I worked at Mine Safety Appliances full-time

    Pros

    Pretty good place to work. Lots of Staff at company is older, younger people could establish themselves for a good career if they stick around. I believe pension is still available which was nice because most places don't have that these days. Many people have been with company for a long time, sometimes that's good (very knowledgeable and helpful), sometimes that's bad (they don't change and sometimes don't care and riding it out until retirement).

    Cons

    Some (not to say all) older folks seem to be milking their ride to retirement and aren't adding much value in my opinion. Management sometimes seems to be more about checking boxes than doing quality work.
