    Pros

    Still a stable work environment where you can make decent money until you retire

    Cons

    Pays less than industry average in almost all area's. They make up for this with profit sharing, VCP and overtime. But they have been cutting back on almost everything, no more shift premiums, less vacation, no more pension. Expect this to continue and make your peace with it before you join.

    Pros

    great people, lots of room to learn

    Cons

    almost like its 10 different companies (which is good or bad depending on your view)

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to have people at the top actually know what they are making decisions about. The company is very large and diverse, so decisions need to be made by those with knowledge, not just a title.
