None, although a few of the employees are good people. And the pay is decent.

Judgmental Managment and inhuman resources department. Only hire white people and are think there excrement smells of roses, love to judge but have many flaws themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once an engineering playground, now quite miserable

    Pros

    This is a family owned business, which can be a benefit. Generally speaking, projects that have visibility of the owners can be fast-tracked and avoid the usual bureaucracy of a public company. Most of the engineering staff are pleasant people, although not the 'cream of the crop' given the low compensation.

    Cons

    The morale is very poor among most of the engineering staff. Creativity is usually stifled by the oppressive management style. The structure of the engineering department is quite top-heavy. If you are concerned about salary, don't bother with Dart. The M.O. seems to be focused on filling positions with people who are not qualified to go elsewhere, and thus cannot demand competitive salaries. There are individuals who are exceptions to this rule at Dart (talented and not concerned with compensation), and Dart is lucky to have had them on staff for 20-30 years. For most others with any real expertise, tenure seems to be about 2-5 years at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Morale is very important in an engineering driven company. If an engineer is not rewarded for his accomplishments, he will learn to choose the easiest solution instead of the best solution. You have forgotten the legacy of this company, and the inventive entrepreneurial spirit is slipping away. Better do something to catch it, or your competitive advantage will slip away with it.

    Miserable. Abusive management

    I worked at Dart Container

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are pretty good, comparable with industry.

    Cons

    Abusive management. No diversity. Creativity discouraged. Hard work is not rewarded. Pandering and brown nosing are. This company was created by a hard working engineer, who used to work side by side with machinists and designers, as little as 20 years ago, but now it is controlled by his offshore billionaire grandsons who gave up their citizenship to avoid paying taxes and alimony.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company badly needs a union, for all employees.
