    Pros

    Great people, good leadership for the most part. You want to learn they will teach you. Good advancement if you put forth the effort. I started as temp on assembly line and when I left I was a process tech. Technology is advanced. Most leaders are great at getting input and involvement from the whole team. If you have an idea for improvement support staff will look into and implement if idea is a good one. Flexible with family issues. (Had health problems in my family and my leader always tried to accommodate me)

    Cons

    Pay scale could be better. Better bonus program. There was a few issues with HR following up an complaints. Especially rude behavior from other employees.

    Advice to Management

    HR to be more vigilant in following up on employees concerns.

    Pros

    Great engineering experience; the ability to achieve goals with different interests.

    Cons

    Small issues with communication and leadership, but really nothing that was a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Work with time diversity among the shifts, i.e., if you are a first shift facilitator on a line, be open to working with and/or advising those on the other shifts-no hierarchy.

    Pros

    Supportive environment, forward thinking management, committed to continuous improvement, decent benefits. Internal talent is nurtured, though sometimes opportunities are limited.

    Cons

    Drive for change sometimes leads to decisions that may not meet long term best interests of the business, occasional penchant for flavor of the month programs handed down by upper management.
