    I have been working at Appleton full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good pay. Dedicated employees from mid-management down.

    Cons

    Dangerous work if you are in production or maintenance. Safety measures are relaxed by management when machines are causing down time. Upper management expects everyone else to "take one for the team," but they are above it all, and make no sacrifices for the betterment of the company. Executives always get caught up in the latest buzzwords and efficiency programs, but rarely follow through with results analysis. Business is in general decline with a number of closed locations in the last decade.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach and lead by example for a change.

    Pros

    Business is rebounding well post-recession. Pay and benefits are competitive. Management is working to improve people leadership. Progressive wellness culture.

    Cons

    industry is sensitive to economic conditions and can experience downturns. limited upward mobility in my discipline given the size of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please continue to pursue business consolidation acquisitions to grow the company in a prudent fashion. remove those leaders that are not got at leading people.
