    Terrible Place to Work/be a Slave! You will only get small clues during the interview process. It is a strange place!

    Pros

    Free starbucks coffee if you have a free moment on a Saturday to get a cup.

    Cons

    VP of Operations is a slash and burn intimidator who discriminates against age and gender. If you are a female or over 40 and are a engineer, cost accountant, production supervisor or manager - look out!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate the behavior of the VP of Operations. How many employees have you paid off or settled with their lawyer? What is your turnover rate compared to other divsions? How many bad "hires" do you make - are they female or over 40? I tried to tell HR what he was doing to me - made my situation worst.

    Great opportunities for entry-level positions - but may be less attractive to employees with more experience.
