No opinion of CEO

Pros

Great people to learn from Good place to start your career Great manufacturing experience Good facilities Good experience gained from work Pay is good

Cons

No flexible hours Senior management spends too much time trying to micromanage your everyday activities Benefits a bit outdated Preferential treatment No leadership positions available Titles do not mean anything unless management Poor training program Not consistent within the company about raises/promotions some groups give better promotions/responsibilities/pay raises

Advice to Management

Employ a training coordinator to properly train new engineers, learning on the job is great but sometimes there is more training required Add flexible hours to keep and attract talented engineers Micromanaging salary employees should be done by supervisors not senior management Give engineers some responsibility with promotions

    Offer competitive pay and benefits to keep employees from leaving to competitors. Micromanage less, as it can hinder an employee's motivation to work.
