Pros

It is a steady income and provided insurance.

Cons

The new upper management is clueless as to how a bakery should run, Our plant has lost so many good people due to corp, choices.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

start compensating your employees for their time. Your management team does not enjoy 70 hours a week with no compensation. you make the bucks so should they!
