    The culture and values of the company are not consistent and vary by location, region, etc. Favoritism in management and HR. Depending on what division you are with, it can be frustrating for women, shop floor workers, and minorities. Corporate mentality can hinder business growth.

    Pros

    The people are the best aspect about working here. Most everyone is pleasant and friendly. The pay is fairly good.

    Cons

    Antiquated systems, very unorganized processes, stale work environment, no diverse leadership (mainly white, conservative males). Overall, this company seems to be stuck in the past with a narrow mindset. They'd probably do well to get fresh leadership in there to truly move the company forward. Definitely not a place for younger people looking for an inspiring work experience but I guess considering the options in the area, this is an okay place.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the new millennium. Realize that if you treat your people really well, they're going to give back to you hundredfold. Look at other truly great and innovative companies and what they're doing in business and with their people.
