      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Good pay considering overtime pay

      Cons

      Severely understaffed. Will not provide opportunities to educated people. Even though you get used to the tough environment, the company is full of complacent old timers. Almost all the employees have been working here for 40 years and aren't keen on seeing new employees. The management is pathetic and the engineers do no work at all while the operators are doing 3 jobs at once for the pay of one.
