    Not worth the effort

    Senior Drafter (Current Employee)
    Valley, NE

    ProsGood benefits.

    ConsPay poor. Stressed, low morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop sending out memos about the record earnings the company is making without passing any of that off to your employees. Stop demoting people who don't deserve it just because you need to move around resources so your bottom line looks better. Start providing real training to your employees. Make the company what you tell people it is when you hire them... a good place to work, where the management cares.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Structures Division

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Valley, NE

    ProsLarge employer with decent benifits. Not a lot to speak of last 5 years

    ConsOld GM syndrome. Poor senior management, does not value employee's or its customers, product quality downward trending, lots of chiefs to few indians, endless meetings and those meetings take priority over customer needs, industry follower not leader in U.S..

    Advice to Senior ManagementWake up, your methods are not working. Learn to appreciate experienced employee's and your customers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Absolutely no opportunity to advance

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    El Dorado, KS

    ProsReasonable wages for small town

    ConsManagement is totally out of touch. Total divide between those in management and those who do all of the work.

    Its not the best place to work.

    Material Controller (Current Employee)
    Jasper, TN

    ProsYou learn alot from other employees, its a very safe work environment, you get pretty good help,and the other employees are pretty decent.

    ConsYou dont get acknowledged for anything you do, you dont get fair pay, and theres too much favoritism in the plant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to be more fair about things, help when help is needed , dont pile on saturdays just because you dont have anything to do, and it wouldnt hurt to show a little acknowledgement every now and then.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
