    Pros

    Good salary, and they really look after their employees. They have nurtured a great work ethic in most of their employees

    Cons

    Some politics and some reports of micro management but it never bothered me. I thought that the grass would be greener out of here but I’ve never found anywhere better since

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going it’s a great example to the other less ethical businesses in the industry
