    Pros

    Excellent shifts to work very open environment well maintained facility. Benefits is ok could be better salaries could be better considering they make 5-10 billion a year. You do get a profit sharing check in July if you worked there before dec 1

    Cons

    Horrible supervisor on the shift I worked on. Went through a temporary service and after 7months of working still wasn't trying to hire me in. Only get 2 breaks a 10 min break which is actually about 6 or 7 mins and the same for the 30min lunch breaks it's about 23min break because of the far walk and you only get raises every year

    Advice to Management

    Company needs to hire in within the 90 time limit and increase the pay rate for temps and hired in personnel hire supervisors that actually knows what they are doing

    Pros

    - Great benefits
    - Open door policy.
    - Positive reputation
    - Some great people there

    Cons

    - Open office
    - Some team members are problematic but management ignores it
    - Overworked teams

    Advice to Management

    Expand your teams (stop overworking team members). Limit meetings - I rarely saw my manager. The discussions when management is not around also reveal many weaknesses among certain leaders.

    Pros

    Good place to learn the ropes, ins and outs of material planning, distribution and related programs (i.e. SAP). Within the plant and office there are some very personable people among the hierarchy. Benefits ok.

    Cons

    Upper Management plays blaming game when issues crop up. No effort made to cooperate between groups . High expectation to be available 24/7. Frowned upon if you arrive after 8 and leave before 6 pm. Very political. Prior Manager did not have management experience and did not have his peoples backs and passed judgement without knowing all facts.

    Advice to Management

    New Manager seems to be an improvement. Get to know each department. Structure cooperation between departments.

    Pros

    There is a great sense of camaraderie at the Warren location because of the plant manager. Though he may soon move up the ladder, he's wonderful at developing those beneath him and he extremely personable.

    Cons

    As a material planner, you may be pressed to work many 12+ hour days. It was typical for me to spend 50-60 hours a week at work, unplanned.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change much, it's a successful system.
