    The people work hard and they work as a team. There is never a problem only an opportunity for improvement. The benefits are some of the best available. Continuous improvement in safety, quality and production are SOP. Action speaks louder than words.

    No job is perfect but this one is pretty darn good.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good vacation time (17-day start up to 27-days total), & good employee culture

    Cons

    Its a German company so there is a little preference to Germans. HR not really the best; imaginary policies can tend to pop up.

    Advice to Management

    Help build and promote those that want to grow, those that do not let them do their job by providing clear communication. Do not allow HR to decide salary, grade level, or promote-ability you know your people and customer needs best !
