    Pros

    Beautiful work environment, great co-workers, and excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Company is hesitant to hire someone without the necessary experience, although they are over qualified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just a little more chance for advancement and pay raises for younger workers who deserve it.

    Pros

    The company has a lot of respect for their workers in general. You are treated very fairly, and they make it so that you are happy to get up and go to work in the mornings. Good co-workers, pleasant work atmosphere. We have managers that actually take the time to get out and work with and for you. You can guarantee that you have good represenation as to your wants, needs, and expectations as they make their way up to the senior management level. You can actually enjoy your job and do a good job that is helping make a difference in a lot of peoples lives.

    Cons

    If I find any downsides, I'll be sure to post them. In general, there aren't any real downsides as I see them. There is always that person or two that you wish you didn't have to work with as they have no people skills, but you do your time and deal with these people the best way you can. It isn't too hard keeping a smile on your face as you know you'll soon be done. You could consider the location of the company a downside for a lot of employee's, as there are quite a few that make quite a long drive to just work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. I know there have been rocky times, but I see you leading us to a bright future.
