    Pros

    Brand recognition, multiple locations across the US

    Cons

    No work life balance, inexperienced management team in some areas, notorious micromanagement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In order to keep some of the better employees, management needs to rethink the work-life balance at the company. Requiring that employees are always available and connectable during non-business hours is unacceptable.

    Pros

    Always improvements that can be made in this fast, paced manufacturing company. You will never be bored if you are self-motivated to find work.

    Cons

    Management. Some managers treat employees with very little respect and are driven by emotion. I'm sure the employees who work directly under these managers have a different outlook on the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and rapport go a long way. Empathize and work with your team.

    Pros

    Okay benefits but the insurance premiums have been rising a fair amount over the last few years. High level top down communication has really improved over the last few years. Lots of focus on trying to promote from within instead of hiring from outside when positions become available. There's been a lot more employee led training classes available on site in recent years which is a plus, but quality will vary from class to class. Standard vacation time starts at 2 weeks and you have the option to buy another 5 days.

    Cons

    Your work-life balance and happiness here is going to hinge almost solely on your manager. Very little consistency across the various departments and teams. Some managers/directors understand the importance of work life balance while others fully expect their employees to work 60+ hours per week, every week. And holidays. As a whole, the company does a good job trying to promote hard working employees but then does a terrible job of training their newly minted managers in how to manage people. As a result, you end up with mid level managers whose management style consists of berating their employees on a consistent basis. Involving HR usually means the person will become the black sheep of the group and probably "laid off" during restructuring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As a manager, you are there to make sure your direct reports have the tools and resources to get their jobs done. Don't forget that. Happy, hard working employees are what get those KPIs
