Pros

It really depends on your management as to what the good qualities are - Flexibility is a plus, depending on your manager. The benefits and vacation are decent.

Cons

It can be difficult to get the job done, processes are not very well organized or set, which creates frustration and wasted time. Most of the management is old school and very set in their ways.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus and appreciate employees more. Be more open to new ideas. Everything is day-to-day with what seems like little recognition.

    Pros

    The facility is well kept and the location is good (an industrial area away from the downtown area). The facility is highly secured.

    Cons

    The hiring website has many flaws that make it very difficult to use. There are websites and email addresses that are not functional. Human Resources is unhelpful and inconsiderate to prospective employees. Unresponsive to emails and phone calls.

    Pros

    The benefits package is very nice. The training was outstanding, and you definitely learn a lot from the trainers, especially if you work with them. This is a great opportunity to learn some skills, and improve your skills. Think of this as AAA baseball before moving on to the majors.

    Cons

    The leadership needs to be re-evaluated. The people doing the work, and even the next level are very good. If you want

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once you get to the manager and senior manager level, things begin to fall apart. A helpful hint: Just because someone has worked in a position for a long time does not mean they will make an effective manager/supervisor.
