    Pros

    They have great benefits, including tuition reimbursement, very nice holiday party every year & lots of involvement in community activities

    Cons

    The salaries are not even close to being competetive for salaries in Atlanta. And overtime is not even an option anymore, they took it away.

    Advice to Management

    This company needs to look at their high turnover rate, they're losing excellent employees because of their refusal to increase salaries. Once the job market improves, they will lose a whole lot more employees.
