Pros

Top management is very reachable and open for suggestions. Company has acquired ISP and the integration is doing very well on personnel perspective. Each department has its "own" flexible hours, mainly allowing to take care of health issues.

Cons

The manufacturing field does not have room for career growth, unless your boss retires. Also, it has too much competition among engineers and few share information to the team. Salary varies too much. The only way to get a raise is being promoted.

    Pros

    People are like family, the area is very cost-effective.

    Cons

    Occasionally there is a distinct lack of communication between members of upper management at the site, which sometimes results in adversarial relationships rather than a teamwork mindset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is key.

    It's an okay place to work. Very old-fashioned and male dominated.
