Good work, good people, iffy follow-through on strategic vision

Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee)

ProsThe work is very good and fast-paced. The goals are in line with what I believe is what's important, and we are striving to achieve them.

ConsThere have historically been several mis-starts and incomplete follow-through on various projects which have made the current tasks more difficult.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the reality of situations instead of focusing on where we should be and how to stretch ourselves as thin as possible in order to appear to be on track.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
