    Pros

    Free doctors and prescriptions. Otherwise not much for a reasonably intelligent and hard working individual. Overtime when available. Some trustworthy colleagues.

    Cons

    Bullying a major issue. Incompetent managers who lack professionalism, tact, diplomacy and the wherewithal to address bullying in the workplace. Nepotism. Inept and unwilling Union representation. HR an absolute disgrace.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of incompetent and poorly trained (if trained at all) management.
