    Pros

    Benefits are good, Need work life balance

    Cons

    Management is too busy looking out for themselves to worry about the employees. Employees are who will grow your company. Invest your time with us, get to know us, teach us, you might just be surprised what we know.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should make a surprise visit to OKC. The Sr. leadership team goes crazy when he is scheduled to arrive, trying to make sure everything is perfect. If everything was done right all the time, there wouldn’t be longer hours and panic before he arrives. Also, he should talk to office employees not just shop workers. We are told to go to HR, but there are so many changes, not sure who to talk to.
