A good place to begin a career, but don't expect to stay long

Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsA good place to cut your teeth on the fundamentals of manufacturing. They've been around for a long time and know their market, their customers and their business. Good opportunity for hands-on engineering.

ConsVery high turnover rate among engineers. The pay isn't great and there is very little (if any) recognition for a job well done. Expectations are high but available resources low. It's very old tech, so don't expect to deal with any new or cutting edge technologies, equipment or processes. Politics play a major role and managers often put personal feelings about an employee ahead of objective job performance. Senior management/leadership is very old-school and set in their ways. New ideas are not welcome. Challenging their norms or asumptions will get you in hot water fast. Tow their line or get booted out quick.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring internally for senior management and leadership. Look outside; look further and higher. Be open to new ideas and new paths. Don't rely on the 'Old Boys Club' mentality.
