    Pros

    New powertrains are being produced at break neck speeds gives you the opportunity to learn at a very fast rate

    Cons

    Not enough managers and engineers to manage daily production, WCM projects, and cover the alternate work schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a large disconnect between CTC and the plants. The stress on managers in the plants is apparent and we will be soon losing very valuable people due to working environment in our manufacturing facilities.
