    Pros

    The pay is good, jobs are not very difficult and healthcare is cheap.

    Cons

    Imagine having to come in and work 12 hours every day. To make matters worse, you never know if you are coming in early or staying late till about 1 hour before shift is suppose to end. You basically have to give up your life. This is one reason why people quit as soon as they are hired. If they hire 10 people, they will be lucky if 1-2 stay. And since they have been cutting jobs religiously over the years, they don't have enough to cover and therefore, make everyone stay over everyday. I spent a few years there and finally given up but my friends are still working there since they are close to retirement and they tell me nothing has changed. They work 12 hours everyday and sometimes on weekend.

    Great Company To Work For While It Lasted As An Original Stand-Alone Company

    Pros

    Good balance of working as a team and as an individual contributor. Although there were different departments, each had a role to play and there was much integration and cross-functionality which made it easier to do job. People were intelligent, talented and down to earth.

    Cons

    There was little room for advancement as people tended to stay within their areas of expertise for long-term. It was one of the few last employers where you could have worked until you retired. The unfortunate circumstance was that it was sold off and the location closed affecting 80% of the employees.
