    Pros

    Opportunities to learn, take on responsibility, interesting projects. Great pay, good benefits though heath insurance was a little high. 401k matching excellent.

    Cons

    Senior management is over their head. Too many levels of management. Too many initiatives and places of focus to perform efficiently. Slow decision making. Lack of realistic long term planning. Unsustainable situation. Recent layoffs eliminated lots of workers, no middle management and didn't appear to streamline operations.

    Advice to Management

    Create efficiencies, reduce levels of management, share resources, empower hourly.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Roquette America.

    Interview

    It can take a while for HR to work their magic and contact you back. It's not unheard of for this process to take several weeks, or even months. Be patient if you can. Interview process consists of a presentation in front of a group of people that you will be interviewed by individually or in a panel type interview. It's a little intimidating, but it's a good way for the company to get a good picture of the potential candidate.
