    I have been working at Uponor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good vacation and benefits. 12 hour shifts with 4 days on 4 days off can be great if you are not being overworked. New building being built in apple valley includes solar and greywater systems that will make it LEED Silver certified.

    Cons

    Management has no idea whats going on down on the factory floor, after banning headphones for safety/productivity reason (the only serious accident since I've worked here involved an office worker not wearing headphones and we have done record numbers in production since I started 2+ years ago) they have also banned the watching of news in the break room due to the controversial riots in Baltimore. As a result moral is at an all time low and anyone with the ability to leave either already has or is planing a move in the near future. After taking a system of production that worked well for a very long time and breaking that job in to 3 separate jobs we are now producing the same amounts as before but using more people to do it. They also rotate you through all 3 jobs so you never know what you will be doing on a given week. All pride in ones work is gone due to very low moral, people are disengaged and unhappy at work and the product suffers as a result. No room for advancement, a lot of internal job postings already have people in mind or are given out based on nepotism. I'm not saying I'm a genius or anything but I feel like I have more skills to offer the company then what I currently do. I have found almost no traction when applying for different positions and have been actively discouraged from applying to others. Wages do not keep up with cost of living/inflation despite record profits. The minimum wage in Minnesota will go to $9/hr starting this August up from $6.15/hr when I started at Uponor. Despite being a hard worker and scoring well on my annual reviews my raises are in the 1.5%-3% range despite a net sales increase of 26% and operating profit increase of 10% for the whole company with North America's figures being even higher. Pretty hard to swallow a small raise when they are building a new $18 million building right next door.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about Lean management and stop paying lip service to it. Don't assume your workers are lazy and remember that a happy worker is a hard working one. Stop forcing through changes at the drop of a hat without letting people know whats going on. (Nothing like coming in on a Sunday to find all the tool racks removed in preparation for a new system of handing them out that doesn't start until the next day. Why can't we start the new system today if the tools racks are removed? Just because, now shut up and get back to work.) So many times a new process is sprung on middle management at the last second and they are hung out to dry when things don't go well. Have a way to communicate with HR and/or upper management, after redoing all the key card readers factory workers are no longer allowed in the office/HR areas so we have no way of talking to anyone in HR except through our direct supervisor. This job has changed a lot in the 2+ years I have been here, I'm not opposed to change but it should make things better not worse. I think a lot of this trouble stems from expanding at an accelerated rate without a clear vision of what made the company successful in the past.
