    Pros

    Secure employment meet some nice people

    Cons

    Long hours once brilliant to work for just want all they can get from you and have little concern for their employees welfare,conditions or job satisfaction they pretend to care but they don't I used to rush into work and loved my job management do not listen to employees input at all which is sad because they are oNLY damaging the company and they will struggle to keep good staff or hire good new staff I have worked for 30 years in this company and im sorry the company has changed so much for the worse
