    Pros

    Good bonuses during good years, there are some good people that care, good workload and learned new skills

    Cons

    disrespectful senior management especially to women and upper management knows but doesn’t do anything about these individuals, HR doesn’t take concerns seriously so nothing changes, they talk about culture but the corporate culture is horrible, most employees hate being there and complain about that place on the daily, problem employees never get talked to, there are so many people that need to be fired and career opportunities are only for certain employees.

    Pros

    Great pay, great employees, fair and knowledgeable management. 4 days on, 4 days off schedule, phenomenal bonuses and many chances for advancement, with hard work. They also take safety very seriously and strive for eliminating any risks. Large company, but very family oriented.

    Cons

    Hard work at times, but you are rewarded for it. Swing shift can be rough at times, but it’s only 4 days and then you have 4 days off to recover.
