    Pros

    Salary was comparable. Company physician available to all employees and their immediate family members.

    Cons

    Management terrible. Old schooled thinking...afraid of change...afraid of risk...it was like beating a dead horse when it came to implementing suggested change in order to meet the changing demands of our society.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously, get rid of old timers...bring in younger generation thinkers to solve today's marketing and manufacturing struggles. Create a TEAM work environment. Engineers and marketing need to be talking to one another about projects....none of this single business of conception to production for product development ...a team of thinkers has a huge impact of the success of products and product changes as it developments.
