    Pros

    Their are no good reasons

    Cons

    Very stressful and very poor communication shift to shift and with management. Management haas no idea how much stress and overloaded work load they put on supervisors. To many cooks in the kitchen. Done this for over 25 years and never worked for a company like this before and I was a long term supervisor at previous company. To many meetings and political fighting from upper management. Underpaid for the work they want.

    Advice to Management

    Put yourself in your supervisors shoes and do their job and I mean DO their job for a 40 hour week and see if you can handle it.

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for advancement. Salaried positions offer better pay and benefits, as well as flexibility. Friendships are easily formed.

    Cons

    While advancement affords great learning experiences, the stress can be greater than the benefits. Company politics affect every position and tie many hands when it comes to making progress.

    Advice to Management

    Allow and support decision making at the lowest level. Respect every employee. Make informed decisions, not emotional ones.

    Pros

    Unless they have changed for the better, none.

    Cons

    I worked at this company for a brief amount of time many years ago. The pay was not bad at the time. But the atmosphere was one of authoritative control. The owner ruled with an iron hand. You were only allowed to wear skirts at a certain length. I was called into the owner's office when I was first hired to have my skirt measured because she thought it looked too short. It was just a bit above my knee. Awful and humiliating. Hopefully they have improved the way they treat their employees since then.

    Advice to Management

    I hope they have changed their ways and moved into the 21st Century.

    Pros

    Some nice co-workers. Descent pay.

    Cons

    IT and Business Management teams do not listen to subject matter expert at on how to build and deploy. Business forces projects and deployment dates on IT that do not make sense and then complains when things break. Employees are minimized, not given knowledge, and are tired and bored because they are not listened to.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and their concerns, there would be a lot less outages and less declining revenue that way.
