      Pros

      None, the cons far overshadow the benefits. If you desperately need a job to pay the bills, do yourself a favor and keep this as the last possible option.

      Cons

      Political, lies, CYA attitude, incredibly high turnover from shop floor to president, laziness, finger-pointing and focus on presenting a problem over a solution. Clueless HR with lack of professional conduct and blatant favoritism. Advancement for those who only wish to bootlick and feather their own nest by maligning hard-working employees. There is no opportunity for self improvement, those who are talented shortly leave for better ventures. Massive problems go unfixed, unnoticed, and ignored. Company feels as if they are consolidating and solely investing in a handful of plants around the country while others remain in a severe state of disrepair. Employees do not receive proper performance reviews, most of them pencil whipped. No care for employee health and safety, with the overall motto being based off a numbers game - no focus on facilities maintenance or management.
