    Pros

    Good insurance, lots of OT opportunities

    Cons

    Mgmt doesn’t communicate well or listen to the staff, they make promises they can’t keep (i.e working every 3rd weekend instead of every other was promised for 1.5yrs and never happened); no advancement opportunities, mgmt plays favorites

    Start listening to your employees, they have a pretty good idea what the issues in the workplace are
