    Pros

    Friendly people, obtain stock after 1 year of working, plenty of work to be done to get the company to the next level, decent bonuses annually,

    Cons

    Still stuck with the old ways of doing things, need to improve technology wise. A lot of people close to retiring and have a negative attitude about change to improve company. Need to have better processes to get product to customers in a more timely manner.
