      Pros

      Great people. Flat structure so lots of interaction with Sr. Management. Exposure to tons of different tasks and functions. Great place to learn a trade.

      Cons

      Low pay compared to other companies in the area. Uncertainty due to constant restructuring and lay offs in the past years. No clear path to grow into a Sr. Position. Very much a boys club in Sr. Management. Severely understaffed in many departments leading to insane work loads even for Jr. positions.
