    Pros

    Can be a good place to work depending on who you work for and if your in a specific position.

    Your opinion as a specialist means nothing when it comes to business decisions. Management very blinded by metrics and numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Utilizing all of your employees talents would make this place a lot better. Stop placing emphasis on incentivizing managers in different departments it will cost you safety and employee turnover.
