    Pros

    Big Co., Decent pay, Education benefits were good, Clean clutter free environment. Great workforce on the floor, But there all gone now.

    Forever changing, Cant seem to get it right, A.C.E. is killing it, Again its not what you know its who you know, No overtime It use to be you could have as much as you want, which should tell you alot, Agusta says it perfectly. "If were working OT were doing something wrong".

    Pros

    Awesome money. High School Grad can make $100K + with OT (FL and Conn locations).

    FL & Conn are Union shops (for now ).
    Fellow employees who do not work or do not work too hard get pay increases like the motivated employees. Nepotism and cronyism are very blatant and rampant.
