    Pros

    The company values hard work and dedication. They also give good bonuses (when they do a good job --I.e. make money)

    Cons

    no perks, overwork you and under pay you, all jobs moving to india, rough working conditions, no proper career planning or consultation--no upward mobility unless you say you may leave or threaten to, quite a hostile work environment with many folks from upper management not understanding how incapable middle management really is. lack of decorum and intelligence in middle management.

    Advice to Management

    people don't leave because they hate the company, they leave because their manager or managers leave them no choice.
