    Pros

    I've been working as a temp for a few months now and the first thing I noticed is that they treats employees very well . They have many miscellaneous bonuses such as safety payouts , meals , gift certificates ect . They have an on site cafeteria and the food reasonably priced and average quality (not bad not great either ). they also for the most part encourage innovation and realize theirs more then one way to do something .

    Cons

    The management is a little hit and miss but definitely tolerable however they are very unclear about their temp to hire processes Some managers have said it takes a couple months some say a year or two none have specified how they go about the process,evaluate performance or when they review at all. The hours can be rather long if you get behind( which could be good or bad depending on the person ) .

    Advice to Management

    Be more clear about you temp to hire procedure to your employees ( both temp's and permanent employees ).

    Pros

    -Upper management will help develop skills -Room to advance within the company -Friendly work environment

    Cons

    -Sometimes too many action items at once

    Advice to Management

    More focus on value added activities and less on charts and graphs. I understand we need some to see where we are vs. where we want to go, but it seems like we do it mostly to make the plant look pretty.
