    Pros

    Pay is better than drawing unemployment, but below industry standards.
    My manager is loyal to his profession and those he manages. However, the same cannot be said for the other managers. They only appear to be placed in positions to fire people.

    Cons

    Over all the pay sucks. If you don't speak Spanish or Portuguese, you have little hope of promotion. They consider English only speakers to be of low value and treat them as unintelligent. Their business will always be successful because they will always have good people they can fire and replace with people that can be pushed around. As soon as I find a better opportunity, I'm gone!!

    Advice to Management

    Take suggestions from the "rank and file", just because they don't have a title doesn't make them stupid. You are ignoring a very valuable resource of ideas and ingenuity because you're too proud to admit that someone else may have a better idea.

    Pros

    Is a strong steady company: you'll have a job as long as you want if you work responsibly. You'll get basic benefits: health insurance, little vacation, holidays.

    Cons

    Very stressful environment, low salaries, expect long hours, being overloaded most of the time, being micromanaged, in the factory needs to improve a lot more in safety of the operation, inside the office to provide a much better comfortable/efficient arrangement, no extra perks, no 401K plan, no profit share, no sick days, no personal days, are some of them.

    Advice to Management

    As a big Company more is expected to keep good employees: fix CONS above.

    Pros

    This is a Large company who's employees gain extremely valuable experience in a short amount of time. The work environment is fast-paced and there is never a dull moment. There are many very good employees throughout the company, both at the management level and below.

    Cons

    The worst part about this company is that they do not value their employees. They are very cheap and do not believe in raises or bonuses, not only for those who simply deserve it, but even those who are irreplaceable. They also expect far too much out of their employees relative to the pay, and the pay is always far, far below the average regional rate per position.

    I could go on for about an hour in the "Cons" section, but I will leave it at this: if you are looking for appreciation, respect, and fair pay, Cutrale is not the place for you...

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the zero-trust policy, extreme micro-management, and zero appreciation of your employees. If you want to keep good employees that can better the company for the long-run then you have to pay them competitively and give incentive to work and stay with the company.
