    Pros

    Fairly good benefits package.

    Cons

    Management changes it's policies at will to suit the situation after the fact. They don't treat their employees equally, some rules don't apply to certain people.
    Like one of the other reviews said too many relatives and buddies receiving special treatment.

    Management likes micro manage only they don't seem to have a clue what they are doing half the time.

    Advice to Management

    Get off your employees backs and let them do their job.
