    Pros

    The pay is great, work is pretty easy, great benefits.

    Cons

    Usually have to work off-shift in manufacturing for years before getting on to first shift, management is inconsistent among shifts. Management does not listen to suggestions.

    Advice to Management

    The manufacturing facilities are losing sight of it's quality procedures. Management thinks it's one way when in reality quality is not being followed. The deviations speak for themselves.

    Pros

    Great salary, a growing business, Nice office space

    Cons

    It is a pretty lean company so the work life balance can be a challenge. The office is in the middle of nowhere

    Advice to Management

    Buy office space in Grand Rapids. You will recruit better talent with downtown office spaces

    Pros

    Interesting projects and products. Friendly and helpful coworkers for the most part.

    Lots of red tape and paperwork to get anything done, both because of regulations and sometimes excessive management oversight. Too much emphasis on squeaky wheels and one-time issues instead of long term impactful solutions.
