    Pros

    They called me into the office and offered up a lot of praise, encouragement and opportunities. I feel like they're grooming me for success but on the flip side .....how long can I last before they use me as a pawn....I've seen it happening to others in just a few short months!

    Cons

    Felt "dirty" after my heart to heart talks with different supervisors, human resources and especially the plant manager. Don't want to give up who I am to advance in this company. They love to fire long term employees and blame their internal struggles on them which seems absurd to me. What excuses will they come up with once every last tenured person has been fired?

    Advice to Management

    Grow Up! You remind me of high school and the clique-ee behavior there. Collectively, you seem strong but individually I see a few insecure managers.
