    Pros

    Great co workers...Great team leaders...grest benefits...work and home life was ok...

    Cons

    Management was not to well,always pushing lean operations...you can only go so lean then it starts hurting quality and production...what was a 3 man job became 1...but instead of slowing the process Down slightly...they actually raised the speed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more...they are the ones actually doing the lean operations...they see the bad quality it leads to and the employee turnover ratio is directly related to this lean operations.
