    Great work-life balance, but leadership and ethics is obviously absent

    I have been working at Parco, Inc. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company manufactures rubber products for several major industries. Business is very stable and profitable. Excellent work-life-balance.

    Cons

    The company has essentially no communications. Every decision is dominated by the top executives. They perceive the communication between line workers as “non-value-added activity” and explicitly tell people not to have meetings. Most of the employees have learned to shut up in the company because voicing their opinion doesn’t go anywhere, and will only get them into trouble.

    Besides lack of communication, there is a lot of fear working in every job position. The top executives don’t value human capital at all and anyone is replaceable in their eyes. If you don’t want to live in that fear, don’t come and work in Parco.

    The plant is a very unsafe and unhealthy place to work. Fine dust is very where. You get REALLY dirty after a day's work there and can easily hurt yourself. People are even afraid of being fired because their safety concerns.

    One last thing I would like to mention is the weird relationship between the top executives. Their relationship manipulates a lot of the politics in the company. They pay most management staff with lucrative salary hoping for obedience or they will be out. Other managers and executives sometimes do have their own ideas, yet they choose to shut up because the pay is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each employee has aspirations and dignity. If you treat them with respect, your business will be much better.

    Pros

    The work-life-balance in the company is good. good benefit.

    Cons

    The company is currently ran by the former president's son for the past 6 years, in which the morale of the company workers has exponentially declined. The president is a bully who cannot stand when his employees are getting along and working together to run his company. There is essentially no leadership in the company and they only want you to do what you are told to do. The company cannot allow innovation, and any previous employee who try to improve the processes got fired.
    Each employee worries about his job. I don't know one single employee who enjoys working there. The turnover is HUGE!! The HR dept keeps quitting because they have morals and cannot stand to fire people who have families to support.
    The work environment is not only dirty but also dangerous. The executives are hesitant to make improvements if it doesn’t improve the productivity, it will only cost them money. The workers compensation in the company is really low in comparison to industry peers, but it doesn’t mean there are no work related injuries in the company. Most of the factory workers are Hispanic and are afraid if they report their injury, they will be fired. When those employees get injured, they take care of the injury without reporting. The company is well aware of that. Yet, they do nothing.
