    Pros

    You are given a company vehicle, decent base pay, solid benefits, and an expense report.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no possibility for advancement; promotions can only be made through the sudden death of a manager or immediate resignation.

    Advice to Management

    Leave Decatur

  2. Really get to know the individual department first (read between the lines)

    Pros

    They do place importance on family. The company as a whole is pretty nice. They have a large participation role in the community. They are a very old and established company and a world leader in their filed. They are the Cadillac of water valves. The company usually has a couple of "special" dinner a year where a spouse can also attend.

    Cons

    Some departments are very political and promotions are based partly on the buddy system. Some departments are ran in a very old world management mentality and communication is very limited especially between upper management and salary employees. The typical work hours is at least 9 hours a day and at times can reach 80+ hours a week. But at those hours salaried employees get paid for their extra hours. (not time 1/2 but just straight time).

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more and don't rule by intimidation, you draw more files with sugar than vinegar.
    Just because that's the way you (management) were mentored, doesn't make if the correct way.
