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

Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) North Haven, CT

ProsThere are a lot of opportunities for people looking to gain experience quickly. Plenty of work and projects to take on which will build an impressive resume. Highly efficient workers can thrive in this environment.

ConsHigh stress and high turnover workplace; little concern for personal well being of employees, and minimal focus on professional growth of employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on building and retaining top talent

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
