Pros

Monetary compensation is almost commensurate with the agony endured.

Cons

Obscene levels of micro-management by superiors lacking appropriate knowledge or foresight. Absolutely no work/life balance. Expect 12 hour days, 7 days a week, and numerous harassing phone calls at home. Minimal opportunity for advancement. Inadequate safety procedures. Excruciatingly long machine down-time. Quality control almost non-existant. Lack of training programs. All the culture and altruism you would expect from a pit of vipers.

Advice to Management

Close the doors, just like in Detroit...

    Pros

    Worked at axle for a number of years as a production supervisor overseeing union workers. The pay was excellent and made over 100k.

    Cons

    Senior management micro manage and have no clue of daily production schedules. They constantly undermine your position as a floor supervisor upsetting the workers which hurt production. Company eventually shuttered the Buffalo Plant.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to be people persons and let the floor supervisors do their jobs.
