    Great learing experience but very political. Diversity and Inclusion is all but non existant. Male dominated.

    Pros

    The organization expects you to preform and employees are given a good degree of responsibility early on. Prsents the opportunity to learn and develop skills in the one area you work in. The company is very diversified in product production and is constantly growing and reorganizing to adapt to market changes. Salaries are below the industry average and raises are based on a faulty review system.

    Cons

    Although the organization is a Fortune 28 company, they have a number of internal struggles. Including promoting leaders who do not possess leadership skills. Often, promotions are based on who is wearing your T-shirt, who you know and who is in the private meeting to speak on your behalf. The company is good at what they do but suffer from being a bit arrogant in their relationships. There is a lack of commitment to diversity and inclusion. Leaders are not committed to true development of the general population of employees. They prefer to hand pick those whom they believe deserve to be developed. Others are left in the cold wondering why they were left off the list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to be more inclusive in their development of employees, Learn to share information with employees and stop showing favoritism.

    Pros

    There is a lot to learn.

    Cons

    Your input is not welcome, or welcome with a struggle, does not matter how it best benefits the company. What the company portrays on the outside is the complete opposite from the inside. A lot of the managers are hypocrites and unfair. If you suck up you get better treatment and performance, if you are hardworking and honest expect otherwise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Times are changing, you need to have an open global mind to stay competitive. People should not be used or treated as an end to a means.

    Doesn't Recommend
