    I have been working at SAFT full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    While I'm actually just a temp working through a staffing company, any time there's an opening available with the company, I can apply for it which is nice. Also, most of the people you work with (temp and full-time) are really cool.

    Cons

    Communication between shifts isn't the greatest, which is a problem when 1st shift gets told everything and 2nd shift has to figure things out on its own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication between shifts has GOT to get better; one shift gets told to do one thing one way, then it doesn't get passed on to the next shift. Makes it very difficult to stay consistent.

    I worked at SAFT

    Pros

    The relationships created were great. Everyone there worked hard toward whatever the weekly goal was.

    Cons

    Poor senior managment made very bad decisions daily. Most decisions required a ton of red tape and trying to get something done was very difficult

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to eliminate poor preformers and set goals then hold people to them
