    Pros

    Good compensation. Friendly employees. Continuous training. Good benefits. Feeling of job security. Challenging role as a Project Manager but it keeps everyday new and different.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Unrealistic time schedules at times (which just comes as part of the territory of being in field service). Too much paperwork; practically have checklists for checklists.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline processes. Keep meetings focused and within given time schedules.

    Pros

    International mobility, lots of possibilities and opportunities if you're motivated and have the dedication to bring your ideas through. Continuous improvement requirements. Compensation is good compared to the local averages and compared to the regional average wihtin the industry.

    Cons

    Demanding job timewise if you want to move ahead quickly, but that can be told from most of the jobs I believe.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits, tons of potential travel and a feeling of family.

    Cons

    Corporate structure did not allow for vertical movement and the plant was located in a "not so great" area of town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By the time the numbers get to the top you must peel back the layers to get their accuracy.
