    I worked at USSTC full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and pay for salary personal. Stable company with a good foundation.

    Cons

    Upper management very clickish. If you are not in the well liked group your past performance means nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate all your management personal and see what they can bring to the table. Don't forget what they have done when new hires come on board. Include them in on the day to day activities. Most importantly is to communicate

    I have been working at USSTC full-time

    Pros

    Family oriented and progressive. Lots of room for moving up if you are interested in doing so. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Family-work life balance can be off sometimes. Cafeteria only open during the first shift hours. But there are plenty of microwaves and big refrigerators.

    Advice to Management

    No advice I can think of currently. Keep up the good work and continue to be open to employee concerns.

    Pros

    Great Company feel and positive work environment! Work life balance was great for the pay and home office was nice to have with no time clock to punch!

    Cons

    Company was acquired by Altria and work force severed and new Altria work force took over. Micro managers need not apply.

    Advice to Management

    Drop communication barriers

    I have been working at USSTC full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Lots of talent and capabilities at middle management level. Seek them out to resolve large scale company issues.
