Pros – There are none to speak of.
Cons – No regard for family or medical situations no matter how good and dedicated an employee you are.
Advice to Senior Management – Show some common courtesy & respect to your workers.
Pros – There is a glimmer of hope that once some of the "good ol' boys" retire, there may be some positive change in culture and operations. There are some good employees, even a handful of great ones, but it is a shame that these people will struggle to introduce change.
Cons – Many employees in key positions are extremely unqualified. A 2-year technical degree is all that is required for the position of CEO and President. Unfortunately, this isn't even a joke. The story continues to be the same all of the way down through the ranks. Poor management decisions are made on a daily basis. Ideas that could improve profits, safety and morale are squashed instantly because that would mean "change", and "change is bad".
Advice to Senior Management – A real close look needs to be taken at the overall approach with the business. One cannot simply continue to buy back stocks, hand out officer/director bonuses and forget about the people that made that profit possible. A vast majority of employees have lost hope and have given up trying. Many good employees have realized this and have left already. I see more of this happening in the near future.
Pros – weekends off and payed every week
Cons – very frustrating to work for
Advice to Senior Management – superviser very hostile and very unfair treatment to women and complications and very unfair job distributions and write up for everything and very unreasonable to listen or communicate effectively and no empathy or compassion to complications job assignments
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
