      Pros

      Some great local co-workers are here. Really good people.

      Cons

      The new owner is absolutely running this place to the ground. I expect the ultimate vision is to get everybody from the US outsourced. This assumption is simply based on the way the owner treats everyone. This individual is more of a, react first & berate before understanding what's going on. Everyone feels like they're walking on eggshells and breathe a *sigh* of relief when you're not the punching bag. Some decisions this individual made has made a significant impact in my career on how to identify a terrible leader. Awful!

      Pros

      Was a good place to work - good culture, cohesive team, good work/life balance. Not the highest salary, but generous PTO and open atmosphere.

      Cons

      Since new owners took over, the company is a shell of what it was. Reduced PTO, no raises, jobs moving overseas. Had to fight to have 401k, no matching. Many core people leaving through layoffs or finding new jobs.
