    Pros

    Only reason I could say is money.

    Cons

    No work life balance. They preach innovation but i left because i was threatened, as others were, when presenting an idea. I do not mean a mild threat but an actual "i will get you" quote from a team leader. Went to hr and was told yes, we know about that person but they try to work with others. He had to apoligize...then i was not given opportunity to interview for exact position on different shift. Retalliation?...yes! I found a great job and i do not sue unless i need to. Outdated safety gear also, presented new but was told it cost too much. Items were out of date per OSHA!

    Advice to Management

    Revamp and listen to employees ..more life work balance!!!

    Pros

    Pay is not that bad for the area. There is better but harder to get jobs. They will hire pretty much anyone.

    Cons

    Poor management Lose benefits every year Not the place it once was. No work life balance. Production works for support departments instead of the other way around. Does not follow it's own policy of overtime notification. Probably 10 different work schedules. Everything from 7 1hr shifts. To 1hr rotating shifts. They squeeze every minute they can out without regard for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try to plan more than a hour in advance. Follow all polices not just the one you need at a specific moment.
