    Pros

    Typically a steady pace and solid market to keep the demand for business. Well known company within the field. Established customers and international reach.

    Cons

    Union labor in the metal working departments. Siloed departments who withhold information and are unhappy with management. Most of the salaried staff does not like working there because of the stress levels. Always late on delivering products to customers due to delays in manufacturing. This leads to dealing with very angry customers (rightfully so). Bad location in Vernon, CA...

    Advice to Management

    You need to have a complete revamp of the staff by bringing in a third party performance enhancement experts. Get rid of the overtime losses due to inefficiency in the manufacturing process.

    Pros

    The compensation offered is great. The facilities are nice and centrally located. It's a good place to work if you want to be challenged and increase your knowledge of international business.

    Cons

    No opportunities for advancement. There is a lack of office camaraderie. Every man for himself here. Lack of training.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in good people. Create more opportunities of job satisfaction (outside of compensation) to retain the good employees. Create a better work/life balance.

    Pros

    Benefits. Facility. Most co-workers. Lots of food provided. Good equipment.

    Cons

    Leads that let workers do nothing whenever they want. Management fabricates performance reports. Management changes their own rules whenever they wish to accomodate themselves.

    Advice to Management

    If you tell an employee they will get a pay increase when they meet their criteria, give them the raise. Dont go back on your word.
