Pros

* Opportunities to make things happen * Talented workforce * Big company that feels like a family operation * Good benefits including tuiton reimbursement

Cons

It doesn’t take long to learn that this division has one goal and one goal only—meeting sales forecast. Chaos abounds with this singularly focused goal; scrap rates are high; on-time delivery suffers; and the end of the month is always a production marathon.

Advice to Management

Meeting sales forecast is of course important but to be first-class the company needs to truly adopt and adhere to a triple-bottom-line mission maximizing value for three distinct stakeholders—people (customers and employees), profit, and planet (environmental consciousness).

    Pros

    Good salary and benefits. Talk a good game to get you in the door to hire you. Decent return on investment in company stock/401K plan.

    Cons

    Long hours with little/no positive feedback. Training and real job descriptions for salary staff do not exisit. Old equipment not capable to meet today's high quality standards. No clear path of progresssion to a manager role.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to you employee's on the shop floor. They no longer trust the leadership. Invest in equipment to show commitment to quality and the business.
