Great place to work!

Senior Quality Engineer (Former Employee)

ProsVery experienced, talented, and driven workforce. Processes were very mature. Workplace culture satisfactorily adapted to necessary improvements.

ConsThere were one or two "bad egg" employees as usual. The General Manager laid off several of us in the Quality Dept. (to save money) and then voluntarily left the company shortly thereafter...

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are less than 100 people at this facility, so Sr. Management must get to know ALL of them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
