    Pros

    Good environment and opportunity, worked on one cool project. Enjoyed working with good people who were always willing to help with whatever I needed.

    It would have been good to travel to a production facility and to work on less drawings.

    Pros

    Good choices of benefits for employees, many locations to choose from.

    Cons

    Many people hired as contingent, and difficult to move from that designation to employee. Sometimes, too automated and, thus, difficult for an employee to get responses to concerns.

    Pros

    -Great company culture with genuine people
    -Flexible work arrangements/work-life balance is good - 9x9 Schedule (every other Friday off), opportunity to buy a week of extra vacation (for one week's pay...)
    -Career Development - lot of opportunity for continued education and cross-functional career opportunities

    Cons

    -All roads lead to Neenah, WI - lots of turnover with younger employees
    -Annual merit raises are somewhat of a joke. Don't expect much unless you are senior leadership
    -Promotions are based on popularity rather than performance
    -Pay is average - market based compensation meaning positions are grouped into grade levels and each grade level has a minimum and maximum salary range
