    Pros

    The pay. Lots of ot (whether you want it or not)

    Cons

    Not willing to educate workers to help advance company. To many snakes as management. Lack of training for new employees which leads to high turn over. Just don't waste your time here current management is hell bent on driving this place into the ground

    Advice to Management

    Stop and hire educated individuals who can successfully run a business not lose millions of dollars.

    Pros

    Many opportunities for improvement are available.

    Cons

    Job security is very low. Individual contribution is expected, but the individual's control to make decisions, changes, or assign resources to a project are very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Work with employees in a non-threatening manner. Assign resources to projects in order of priority. Don't start too many projects without proper resources available to finish them. Empower people to make the decisions they are paid to make.
