    Pros

    A very few managers really do care about their reports

    Cons

    Too many managers, directors, and principals that don't have a clue how to run manufacturing business

    Advice to Management

    Stop the nepotism & hiring from state schools - get some real talent. Recent implementation of product/process development controls is a disaster - too inflexible and cumbersome to get things done in a timely fashion. One size does not fit all, Jose A.


  2. Great pay, rough culture

    Pros

    Pay is at the top end of the market. The company's stock continues to do well thanks to a well crafted acquisition strategy.

    Cons

    Each functional group has its own culture. Marketing's culture is rough with very high turnover and limited opportunities for advancement.
