    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, made some good friends among associates, peers, etc

    Cons

    Confusing organizational structure, inconsistent and hypocritical implementation and enforcement of company policies by HR and middle management, 12 hour shift schedule, huge turnover

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time on the floor investigating the disconnect between rhetoric and reality

    My management is unappreciative and condescending, hindering results with unneccsary processes.

    Pros

    Great benefits and a good wellness program .

    Cons

    There is no consistency with n processes, they seem to make them up as they go. NO merit increases last year. High turnover rate and they are losing long time employees. No career development.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees they are valued, show employees they are respected. Listen to them when they tell you waht works instead of dismissing them.

    Pros

    Work/Life Balance is incredible here. Pay is good. Previous manager was very flexible and collaborative.

    Cons

    This is still the good 'ol boys club. There is an inability to adapt to today's virtual business and are passive aggressive and almost pouty when they are challenged to evolve. Communication is awful, you will be all but ignored if you are not one of the boys. Because if this lack of communication, they can't give a clear path to your role, or do they know how to develop you and they admit that.

  6. No Coherent management organization

    Pros

    slightly better pay than others, healthcare from day one, paid uniforms.

    Cons

    I spend most days doing and undoing the same thing due to different managers changing plans. The company seems to care for its employees but I have seen more evidence to the contrary.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more and stop requiring so much overtime

    Pros

    Great people! Good benefits, but beware, the company is eliminating benefits to save money (education assistance).

    Cons

    This place will make you age quickly. People work hard and make huge contributions, but lack of direction and recognition hurts morale.

    Advice to Management

    I used to work for a company that had good HR leadership. Sun needs to upgrade in this area. Makes a big difference.

    Pros

    Pays decent wages for the marketplaces it is in, frequent job opportunities which are posted internally first, ample opportunities to be involved in cross-functional projects, and some of the leaders are decent.

    Cons

    Management layers are extensive, and turnover on the hourly side is quite high for manufacturing. A great deal of lip service is given to 'listening to the employees' but very little is actually done and the company culture is very much one of management entitlement.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees; some of them are probably just complaining but there are also some who do have some valid concerns and/or great ideas which could be implemented.

    Pros

    A lot of good people to work with. Place is clean and for the most part a safe place to work.

    Cons

    No preventive maintenance. Garbage for packing material. Makes doing your job difficult. Billion dollar a year company but they claim we are not making a money. No year end bonus. At least not for the hourly employees who are doing all the real work. No pay raise in 6 years.

    Advice to Management

    You say you are a family oriented company. Stop eliminating jobs and putting people out of work. Do you really care about people or are we just numbers to you?

    Pros

    Clean Work Place, Friendly Atmosphere, Hourly Wage, Located within diving distance of Tri State area, Safety is top priority at Sun Products!

    Cons

    No Advancement = Union, Forced Overtime, Promised Shift but never get it due to weekly job cuts, Lower and Upper Management skills lacking to the point of hindering production. In addition, 50 + employees are being laid off due to production loss occurring from low wages and new plant just recently built out mid west.

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice to provide as they will not listen nor do they care.
