    Pros

    401k plan is excellent and pay is competitive. The company is one of the last great American companies.

    Cons

    Too political and the legacy processes are inefficient and ineffective. Also, building sways in the wind and everyone gets sea sick.

    Advice to Management

    Value your younger employees. I was working harder than most pensioners, but my total compensation was much less.

    Pros

    Great Income for Blue Collar worker, Good insurance benefits, Hard to get fired once you get in, extremely safety conscious.

    Cons

    Rotating schedules, tough on family, work schedule dictates life, very very poor training. Your skills degrade year after year. Union officials worry more about feathering their own nest and defending poor worker standards than promoting a good workforce for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Give more responsibility to workers, provide incentive for cost savings, provide continuing education for employee fields, demand more expertise in management, about management, and pay them for that,

    Pros

    Great pay, and benefits for the amount of work.

    Cons

    Everything is dirty, the air, the desks, the city, the management.

    Advice to Management

    Make an investment in the people who are trying to get some work done. Quit supporting the lazy managers with the 70's attitude who recall fondly the days of drinking and sleeping on the job where women weren't allowed.....

  9. Very racist at the portage plant

    Pros

    good training in safety and in working with members of a labor union. The pay is good and there is a lot of opportunity.

    the job is dangerous and there are some people who are tough to get along with. You must always be aware of whats going on around you.

    Pros

    chill work environment depending on your manager and the location in which you work

    great benefits

    company cc - so no waiting on a corporate reimbursement

    relocation package

    willing to invest in new technology to aid with your work

    hard to get fired

    Cons

    new CEO getting rid of lots of employee perks

    women make severely less unless you have high up connections

    HR and manager will work together to avoid lawsuit after the fact (my title was changed once to save their behinds on salary differences between sexes) Of course they didn't admit to this but I'm far from stupid.

    creeping at a snails pace to diversify...good old boys club
