Used to be a good company to work for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Moorhead, MN

ProsWas a strong company with a good corporate and worker relationship. Had good pay and benefits.

ConsAfter a record profit year the company locked out its Union employees after the union refuse to sign a new contract that stripped the union of its rights, and raised the employees health care cost to the point that the average employee was getting a pay cut. The company is now not profitable, but the CEO refuses to admit he had a mistake and negotiate with the Union.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf the current management had done a better job of enforcing the work place rules that were all ready in place, they won't have felt the need to break the Union. Admit you were wrong to lock out the Union and negotiate a fair contract, before it is too late for the company to recover.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
