    Pros

    Good people, good product., good values.

    Cons

    Archaic, still using many legacy software products, cannot see the forest through the trees, resulting in HUGE inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Keeping looking for how to improve; don't just keep repeating old and bad operational and management mistakes.

    Pros

    some of the people really tried to work and encourage me. I learned alot about variious aspects of Material Handling,Shipping,Assembly, and Testing. The Engineers were very helpful,and taught me alot about the company,and the Manufacturing process.

    Cons

    Was not able to connect with the right people to get placed permanently. Could have used more guidance in finding the right direction.

    Advice to Management

    Give more clues as to what direction would be best for job candidates.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule Work is pretty much straightforward every day company culture is strong teamwork is highly recommended Some management relate well to employees

    Cons

    Some management play favorites Management doesn't take too kindly on employee solutions unfair compensation structure (changed) changes always came with little to no warning

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more than management, who work upstairs. Sometimes the employees on the ground may have a workable short-term (or long-term) solution.
