    Pros

    They finally raised the pay scale. Job well done on that. They have taken steps to attempt to make changes for the better.

    Cons

    Management is very poor. Separate rules for each shift. No one seems to have any answers to any questions on night shift. Right hand doesn't seem to know what the left hand is doing. Very hard for some to move with in the company. I have had much better benefits with other companies. I, as well as others would like to see medical benefits with a small copay for doctor visits an prescriptions. I personally can not afford to use the insurance with the huge deductible we have.

    Advice to Management

    All shifts need to get on the same page. They need to listen to their employees concerns more instead of just blowing us off. There have been numerous safety concerns brought up but they blow it off and don't take the employees concerns to heart.

    Pros

    Good pay, decent benefits, and some nice perks. The team was good to work with, and the project work was generally interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    Company was bureaucratic, often requiring cutting through a lot of red tape to get things done. Technology was often out of date. Sometimes hard to get direction from direct management. Core market seems to be shrinking.

    Advice to Management

    Present clearer long-term direction to staff and customers.

  9. Not bad, but ended in disappointment.

    Pros

    A lot of overtime was available.
    Hours are very flexible.
    The tasks at hand are easy to learn and catch on to.

    Cons

    When I had a benefit issue, they did not work with me to correct it.
    Management is not the best.
    The pay was too little at a start of $9.00 per hour and a bonus of .45 cents.
    Too many calls per day and not enough wiggle room. I felt overworked at times.

    Advice to Management

    Be understanding of employees needs and start paying them higher.
