I have been working at Superior Essex full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Training is very fast paced and technical. The special terms and techniques take years to master but the people are always willing to help you understand the products and the methods.
Most people wear multiple tiles and cross traditional boundaries of quality, production, management and other.
The unions are well run and seem to want to grow with the business, not at all like the UAW stuff I have dealt with.

Pay is also very lean. Does not pay well for skills and talents, causing excessive turnover.Advice to ManagementAdvice
