    Good people to work with

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities. Promotions and leadership training are reserved for a very select unqualified group of people. No career path or direction. Lack of leadership. Supervisors and managers are nothing more than a group of sycophants that fall over themselves to tow the company line. No clear direction, lack of goals and ever shifting directives.

    Promote the performers not your friends from Pennsylvania.

    Pros

    Decent health benefits. Nice facilities. Great vacation benefits.

    I’m not sure how you stop the exodus. You’ll have to come up with pay or I don’t see this being anything more than a bridge job for most.
