    Pros

    Long hours, many challenges. Long periods away from home and family. If that is what you are after, this is the place to work.

    Cons

    Most of the challenges are due to upper managements inability to think out side the box and create more problems than they solve. Very little recognition for what you do as upper management is too busy patting themselves on the back.

    Advice to Management

    Stop driving away good talent. Your tactics are not only causing the company to lose valued skill sets, but customers are fleeing as quick as they find a replacement source.

    Pros

    Not management employees were great to work with.

    Cons

    The management is so bad it is beyond description. Nothing in this firm is done with anything other then short term gain in mind. If you like to do good work, lead industry, get rewarded for good work or want to respect what you do, don't work here.

  9. There are great people in the company that has been owned by venture capitalists that squeeze money out of the operation

    Pros

    There are great people that work there and the industry is competitive and the company is positioned well in the industry. There is good mobility and advancement for those that do a good job.

    Cons

    There was always constant pressure on costs and margin. The company had a bonus plan for many salaried staffers, but really never would pay out on it as the goals were beyond stretch goals most of the time. I only received one bonus in 5 years of employment there. There was a decidedly poor expenditure for R&M as well company-wide

    Advice to Management

    Value your people and continue to invest in your equipment. Do not rely on capital when R&M could suffice and staff the facilities so that they can keep the equipment maintained.

  10. It was a safety hazard and issue with all the machines i either worked on or around and the overall employee rate was hi

    Pros

    The insurance was good and to be off when possible was a plus

    Cons

    working with hazardous machines that either were cutting fingers off or catching on fire a lot and then the toxic fumes of plastic

    Advice to Management

    They did get under better management and started to get rid of deffective equipment that is out of date.

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime for those who want or need it. Nice climate controlled production area. Lots of chances to work on holidays and scheduled vacation.

    Cons

    Constant turnover with both management and hourly workers. Management often has no clue about how to run production. Its the only plant where the operators do more maintenance the the maintenance personnel. There is no room for advancement and the "good buddy system" is in full blossom. There is no such thing as work-life balance and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to learn the business and don't be in such a hurry to run off talent. Most importantly, treat all employees fairly.
