    I worked at LaFrance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Love the fact that they give you half days off before a holiday, this is unheard of and really makes for high morale! If the local sports teams were winning you may get off early to catch a game.

    Cons

    Most disappointing is CEO humiliating workers in company meetings. You have to have thick skin at this company and roll with it rather than take it personal. If you speak out of turn or do not answer the CEOs answer correctly he will make you sit under the table for instance, or leave the meeting. IMO this was not professional. I also didn't care for how much complaining coworkers did, I wish there was more of a team feel to the working environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers need drop the "do as I say not as I do" live by your example and your workers may get in a better team oriented mood!
