    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The people are great. They are some of the best people to work with. Everyone is willing to help with anything at work or home if needed. Family atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is not what I expected. Chance of advancement seems poor at the present time. Not being challenged enough.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the employees in mind as an investment. Make sure they advance and feel good about where they work. Don't think of company advancement without them.
