Pros

The money is good...that's about it. It is pathetic to know that you only work for the weekly paycheck.

Cons

Management is terrible. They have no clue as to what goes on each day. They spend (waste) a lot of time and energy trying to figure out new ways to screw over their employees and each other. If their customers knew what goes on, they would be out of business. The product quality has gone downhill. Cheaper materials, poor design, poor engineering, poor planning, foreign programmers who have no knowledge of machining. Wasted money on painting floors when there is no tooling. This place has all the "isms". Nepotism, favoritism, cronyism. If you don't "know" someone, forget it. They employ every union busting tactic in the book. Recently, that seems to be their main goal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come out onto the shop floor once in a while so you can see how bad it really is. Implement a comprehensive training program for all new hires and utilize the probationary period to weed out those who aren't progressing. Eliminate the "minimum requirement" rules that close the door to many potential bidders on jobs. Stop trying to take away our pay and benefits to line your pockets.

    Pros

    Ability to gain knowledge into Oil & Gas Equipment manufacturing industry

    Cons

    Career growth is terrible, this company would rather hire from the outside than promote within. Financial Management Acceleration Program is a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop luring college grads into your organization, you are wasting the most valuable years of their career.
