    I worked at Viracon full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good work shifts and the jobs aren't very hard. Great health benefits programs to take advantage of.

    Cons

    Poor promotions and raises. They always seem to hire people from outside the company that they have to train instead of promoting the people who have been doing the work for years. There is a disconnect from the higher ups and the employees when it comes to making decisions that affect work life.

    Advice to Management

    Start promoting from within and pay your employees a little more fairly.
