    Easy work. Very repetitive work. Co-workers were really nice people and they made the time go by fast.

    They do not pay well. There is no room for moving up and trying to get a better or higher position.

    Pay Employees More. Create a program for employees to move up within the conpany.

    Pros

    The way the schedule was, you got every other weekend off, which was a good thing. You could make plans around that,

    Cons

    The twelve hour shifts. If you can do it or used to doing it, you'll have no problem. It get's boring at times. If you get to work in another section, you learn something new!

    Advice to Management

    Put more TRUST in your employees!!!!!

    Pros

    Good in product innovation and some unique services
    Market share is increasing in some regions
    Quality is better than others in the market

    Cons

    High turnover (people leave or let go became a habit)
    Needs improvement from professional point of view (as a company and as management)
    Salary depends on relations and personal satisfaction
    No clear policy and no clear structure

    Advice to Management

    Don't look at numbers/revenue only. Talk to your people in all regions. You have to get closer to your employees not just depend on top management feedback. Understand if they are happy or not and why. Ask a simple question to your employees " if you get another job with the same or little more salary , will you leave ?" This will tell a lot.
