    I have been working at SL Industries full-time

    Pros

    Small, intimate team means that you interact with everyone from the top to the bottom -- great chance to learn, network, and see all of the workings of the company. This also allows you to distinguish yourself easily for internal promotions. Projects are defense related or for major aerospace companies, so work is interesting and has a sense of importance.

    Cons

    Company is stuck 30 years in the past -- computer systems are out of date, so not much is really automated. Company culture has a strong resistance to change and forms hostile cliques (though many employees are truly wonderful). Your input is respected in direct proportion to your salary. Chaotic internal systems that are very ad hoc, few long-terms solutions implemented.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the solutions that 21st century has brought to business systems. Be willing to pay for talent and intelligence at all levels of the company so that you can build a culture that encourages new ideas and self-improvement.

  3. "Don't do it."

    Pros

    Good pay lots of hours

    Cons

    Bad ppl to work for. Drama everywhere. And all around cheap.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about what ppl do not what others say
