    Pros

    The people you work with, they are like family.
    Steady paycheck, always paid on time.
    A lot of areas to gain experience.

    Cons

    The people you work with, they are like family. Family is not always pleasant.
    Pays enough to keep you, but not enough to live life fully.
    Constant schedule changes, making employees take vacation time when "slow", but then ordering mandatory overtime a week later.
    Not much room for growth, salary caps are too low, no exceptions for cost of living. You can be working there for 10 years with no merit increase.

    Advice to Management

    Stop ruling by fear. Get organized and get paperwork to your employees on time. Be more professional. Stop making people take vacation time one week, then making them work overtime the next week.
