    Pros

    Rocky has an extremely friendly workplace, with good, hardworking people who respect each other and make work fun. They are family oriented, with lots of family and community events.Rocky is headquartered in the poorest county in Ohio, so they give back to the community on a grand scale and expect their employees to do the same. They have a very generous salary and benefits package, nice employee discount program. Good Quality and Continuous Improvement training program. Company goals and expectations are well communicated. If you are content to simply earn a paycheck and not trying to advance, you will be very happy here.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement or tuition reimbursement unless hand-selected to be in their management mentorship program, leaving those "not in the clique" feeling worthless and trapped. Vacation black-out for end-of-quarter/year-end, includes winter holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of individuals who try better themselves and care about the company and community and strive to make it a better place for all. These are your true assets.
