Pros

good pay, good benefits... good people at the working level

Cons

corporate politics have created a culture of mistrust and paranoia.
Too many rumors about closing plant and moving to China or Mexico.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support employees to focus on their work, instead of worrying about what the score is.
A lot of inefficiencies are caused by people feeling aprehensive to stick their neck out on an issue, especially if it will cost $$$... regardless if it is needed or not.

    there will always be tough decisions when you are in an extended down business cycle. But, the manufacturing sector is resilient and will rebound.
