    Growing pains

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits and time off / vacation, average compensation,

    ConsStill finding their direction from merger in 2011/2012. Change, change and more change without adequate support to implement goals. Communication is lacking compounding the ability to achieve company goals.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate more effectively. Talk to your people and listen. Those doing the job on a daily basis are more in tune with what can be accomplished and be manageable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ConsCompany is still searching for an identity. Pay is average. Promising bonuses but not delivered

    Run..... fast

    Marketing (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsNice people to work with. Health benefits are pretty good

    ConsThe HR dept is only there as a cover. Americans aren't really welcome in the production dept. IT and marketing go through people more often then the toilets are flushed. The aim for the company is to save a dollar wherever they can, especially in the injured employee dept. (injury attys should stand outside, they'd get a caseload).

    Advice to Senior ManagementWaste of time and breath

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Corporate culture dysfunctional.

    Mid Level Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsMany of the non-management employees are very kind and helpful. I am still friends with quite a few. Salary was adequate.

    ConsCommunication was very poor. Management had their "clicks". If you weren't in the "click" you were left out of processes, projects, etc. I even experienced honesty issues with mid level management. I was completely miserable and dreaded comings to work each and every day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication improvement and team work need to be the focus. There was no empowerment either.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great paycheck? Ha! That's a joke

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOvertime most of the time. Benefits when hired on full time are pretty good. Sometimes get to eat some decent food.

    ConsNobody can support a family on $8/hour. Promotions RARELY happen in this company. And it is ridiculous the workload management expects you to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay your employees like humans that are worth something, not animals. Working your 8:30 to 5 jobs with meetings about the next meeting you're having does NOTHING. You want productive? Help your employees help you. Point blank.

    This is one of the worst places i have ever worked, I want to shout to new people "RUN"

    Sandwaich Assembly (Current Employee)
    Claremont, NC

    Prosif you are desperate for a job. You will be able to get overtime, and after being hired full-time, benefits

    Consshort breaks, standing in one place all day. It is a very boring job!! Treated like a child

    Advice to Senior Managementlisten to employees more, operators are not always right treat people fair

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Coach

    Coach (Current Employee)
    Enid, OK

    ProsMost of the coworkers are great and fortunately Enid cost of living is lower than most.

    ConsLow pay, horrible C-level & VPs. Big bonuses and do not know their business. The CIO is a joke! Never seen an IT shop without change management or system monitoring, they have it because the CIO wants to change configs at his please although he cannot program a shell script!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDump the CIO (former plant manager) he is a joke at best! Actually he's not even a joke, just sad.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
