    Pros

    Good employees at the operator and maintenance levels. These employees take pride in their work and create a good work environment. They offer professionals a good relocation package.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to the same job function in other industries. At this time they are optimizing employees so they require a lot of multitasking with no extra compensation.

    Advice to Management

    They need to evaluate upper and middle management positions. They are loosing good employees based on poor decisions made at the plant and local management levels.
