    Pros

    The owners of the company truly care about the employees. They provide opportunities for advancement and aren't afraid to invest in employees who have potential.

    The flow of information is not always the best from one manager to another. Communication has gotten better, however, in the last several years.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the legacy of the owners and keep doing the things that have made the company successful, but don't be afraid to attempt new ideas.
