Good people, horrible GM/President

Management (Former Employee)
Chula Vista, CA

I worked at Doncasters full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGood engineers, maintenance, employees; a lot of employees work hard to make a good product and make the company successful, an honest group of people loyal to the company.

ConsTerrible, oppressive GM/President - a bully; too many upper-management people that end up confusing operations instead of streamlining them; good old boy network with friends of GM/President; union was brought in recently due to terrible employee relations

Advice to Senior ManagementFire GM/President, reduce upper-management people, treat employees fairly

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