    It's OK. Maybe it's just the sales branches that aren't so good.

    Pros

    The people I work closely with ate amazing people. Unless they've become sales reps then they are just angry bossy people. Works well with my school schedule and gives me 32 hours a week as part-time when I'm not injured.

    Cons

    Been there for over a year and there is no bonuses or raises even people who have been in my position(merchandiser) for a long time haven't seen a raise. The company as a whole sees you as just a number even if you're boss doesn't. Filing for workman's comp sucks and you don't get any hours if you're hurt and can't do your normal job but you also don't get supplemental pay even though you were injured on the job. It might just be the sales branches because my friends that work at the st. Louis main hub and brewery have the time of their lives but that could also be because they are engineers and make way more than I do.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about the little people.

    Pros

    Technical level schools still offered, pay is about average. School reimbursement is $1000 per year. Healthcare premium is paid for.

    Cons

    Maintenance makes the plants work, no respect for this.No new hires on the horizon to help short handedness. There are no engineers left .

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on keeping technical knowledge and those people satisfied. Spend roughly 50% to 60% of production time justifying what we do. Financial challenges are impossible to close gaps on. Revisit who gets bonuses and why.

    Pros

    Available resources vs. connection to the companies business strategies; great people to work with, strong financial mindset, global footprint, etc.

    Cons

    Too much focus on short term business results, need to learn how to drive profits by selling product vs. cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace "the consumer is boss" philosophy - don't just talk about it! Need to build foundational business fundamentals and keep experienced professional in the company.
