    Pros

    Work life balance is great. Management seems to really care about employees. Customer first mentality is apparent. Coworkers are reliable and team oriented.

    Cons

    On boarding and training were very minimal. They are not very technologically advanced and have many manual processes for data trending and analysis. Far too many websites for employee use and trying to determine where you go for what.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the positive morale up, maybe focus on technology that could save you and staff time to focus on other endeavors.

    Pros

    Very good work life balance

    Cons

    The highest level of management is not qualified. They don't stretch themselves or their employees. They surround themselves with their friends instead of highly qualified employees. High potential employees don't last as the pace is too slow. No accountability required. Executives who miss plan are not removed. This company will be sold and profits will soar.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your executives accountable. Figure out what your strategy is and execute it. Overhaul your executive staff.

    Pros

    The hours are good and room for overtime. Great facilities and access to parts/tools needed to do the job.

    Cons

    Needs to work on management skills. There is not enough communication between managers and their employees. Pay does not match what a person's skills are. Should be paid based on merits, not a percentage that other employees receive and are not at the same skill level or time with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees and push for a better system for pay increases.
