    I worked at AFL

    Pros

    Growing company with lots of room for advancement. Self motivated, just get it done peronalities do well here. Overall good benifits and good location in Duncan, SC with several factories with in a few miles. Company is full of potential, if it can establish common goals, objectives and policies within its manufacturing facilities.

    Cons

    There is a lack of global manufacturing systems and goals. It's every man for himself, everyone has there own set of goals, if at the end of the day the numbers say everything is good then it is. If they say things are not good, the fire drills begin and knee jerk reactions are eveywhere. Policies are not enforced equally through out the plants and departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get everyone on the same page in your manufacturing facilities.

    Pros

    Literally one of the best companies to work for anywhere. First class management ...... room for exceptional growth for individuals starting their careers. Full suite of products to sell ......... excellent benefits...... again a world class organization

    Cons

    None really ...... Japanese owned company ....... however this is not a drawback as they instill a great work life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really ........ just ensure room for growth internally and the rest will take care of itself. Insist on communication internally to ensure all are on the same page and are moving towards a company goal.

    I worked at AFL full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility and reasonable work loads. They do try their best to keep people on board during slow seasons. If you just want to make some decent money and go home, this is a good place for that. Keep your head down and your opinions to yourself and you'll be fine.

    Cons

    Little opportunity for growth. If you aren't part of the inner circle, you are going nowhere fast. Could be a very frustrating situation for someone looking to really grow their career.

    Former Intern - Engineering Co-Op in Duncan, SC
    Former Intern - Engineering Co-Op in Duncan, SC

    I worked at AFL as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    High Pay. aggressive work ethics. Lots of lateral and vertical job opportunities. AFL is very committed to quality product and attempting to exceed their customer expectations. AFL is also a Japanese owned company so there are many opportunities to travel abroad.

    Cons

    AFL does not spend a lot of money or time investing in their most valuable assest, their human capital. Though pay is high, they have a large number of temp employees that are never hired on. They also do not have a system in place to reward good work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having systems in place that reward not just hard work, but quality work are important. Getting something done doesn't justify the means to get it done. A system that would qualify employees on both their work ethic and their respect for other employees as they accomplish their work would be beneficial.
