    Pros

    competitive pay, along with proper training, and many locations to choose from for hire or transfer to. safest work environment ive ever worked in

    Cons

    management is poorly run, techs are required to do too much with too little of expected time for completion of work, pay should be better.

    Advice to Management

    Don't run the company from your wallets point of view, run it from your techs point, without them you have no business and as much as you may not like to hear it, they know better than most of the suits will ever know about what works and what doesn't.
