    Poor experience that got worse with each managerial decision

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou are able to cash out excessive personal time off for eighty cents on the dollar. They also provide you donuts on payday.

    ConsDifficult to take time off because various managers do not frequently approve vacation requests, even months in advance. Lots of turnover.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBegin to thoroughly interview your prospective employees and inform them what type of atmosphere they will be joining.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Mishawaka, IN

    ProsGenerous vacation; Independent work environment

    ConsTransparency is lacking; Little opportunity for growth; Little training for ambitious employees;

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is young and inexperienced. They should be allowed to learn more management skills and techniques in a college setting. Promotional opportunites should be based on credentials. The most hard working and educated should have the opportnities to move up within the company. Management should be more truthful with employees. Deception and lying will be exposed. Reviews should be performed much more regularly. That is, at least, once every six months if not more frequently.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
