    Pros

    Very solid company. Great benefits (401K contributions are best I've ever seen). Plenty of opportunities for upward progression. Pay very competitive. You know your pay bracket. Fair annual review process. Safety program. Coworkers. Military benefits for guard and reserve.

    Cons

    Union environment at the plant I worked at. Some silos from department to department. Office and company politics. Got to love getting dirty at a Kingsford plant. Arc flash uniforms.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing right by your people in terms of pay and benefits. That alone made it very hard to leave. Decentralize some of your Engineering Group. Strict project based engineering is rather boring. Most engineers want to dig into the processes a little more and your plant level engineers will be more affective at doing that anyway.

    Pros

    Experienced scientists and technicians who can answer so many questions. Great place to learn technical skills as a contract employee.

    Cons

    maybe it was just when I was here, but there seems to be a high turnover rate of employees and new faces. So many different projects all at once.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more temps.

    Pros

    Interesting projects to work on with good colleagues. Fine work-life balance, company sponsored wellness program

    Cons

    Too much politics, too much employee fluctuation, and too little appreciation for technical expertise and knowledge retention. Focus is on short term money making instead of long term value building.
