    I worked at Coating Excellence International full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent company the people and machines are great.

    Cons

    Ever since Bill left and no one with a spine walks the floor to learn of machine problems or people complaints the plant has terrible moral. The management side needs the a review. The office needs to cut the fat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn about fixing the problems. Rather than blaming the employees. Need to put money in to get money out. Can run lean on thing we need do more with less really!!!

    Pros

    Decent pay. Great people on the floor to work with. They attempt to use a legacy approach to training with little success.

    Cons

    Don't expect much from anyone above your supervisor. Ignorance is abound. Shifts change with little to no notice. They claim priorities are safety, quality, speed in that order, however supervisors are only worried about speed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave your home problems at the door. Trust your operators know what they are doing and let them work

    Pros

    very good work / family balance
    good pay

    Cons

    Senior Management is unacceptable and operates on a good boy network. As a growing company that was effective but once cei was scaled, there needed to be experienced, non emotional leadership.

    cei is growing without any strategy that people don't know what is expected of them.

    There is significant fighting among departments, driven by in experienced managers and good boy network.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and start acting like professionals. Treat everyone with respect.

    Friendly people, lots of social gatherings, very open to vacations and time away from the office.

    Loosing its reputation and market share due to stupid and easily fixable issues.

    Pros

    A nonunion company that is willing to invest in the company by purchasing new equipment. I applaud their actions by keeping jobs locally.

    Cons

    My main concern would be that they are using this down turn in the economy to force concessions from their employees.

    Pros

    Non-union manufacturer that can compete with foreign competition and provide the best service due to leveraging domestic location

    Cons

    Unless the employee can crack the clique that exists within the internal organization, you're not going anywhere fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluate employees fairly, promote from within, provide incentives to excel, be honest with employees, pay productive staff better

    I worked at Coating Excellence International

    Pros

    A lot of good talent to work with.

    Cons

    A tight clique. Advancements if you know the right people. Continued raise/profit sharing freezes. Company expanding, but at employee expense. Some management needs to be replaced as they dont have the experience needed to manage people. Bad insurance for a company this size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good look at nagement. Company will lose more good employees if changes aren't made.

    Pros

    US company competing in coated products successfully with modern assets. Forays into woven bag sales and flexible packaging have been very good strategic moves.

    Cons

    Management is subpar and this undermines the whole culture. Communication and overall professional development needs attention. Lots of givebacks by employees in last two years in the way of salary, benefits, quality/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve culture before all the talent has left!
