I have been working at Duke Manufacturing full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The administration is very fair and impartial. They treat everyone poorly, not just certain people. There's no evidence of a good ol' boys club either. The pay is good and the benefits are fair.

Cons

The work environment is extremely strict. There is very little teamwork and everyone seems to be in it for themselves. Sometimes it feels like a contest to see who can throw who under the bus the fastest.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to make your employees feel more welcome and be more supportive of things that cannot be controlled. Understand that your employees are humans and have feelings. Invest more in your employees and they will invest more in your business.

    Pros

    I liked the versatility that you have an opportunity to train on different jobs and sometimes move into different departments when people are absent. I also like the job bidding process to move to a different department. Its a fair process.

    Cons

    The challenges at this company I visually saw where people not working together for a common ground of the same interest to get a job done. i think that falls under individuality. No 401K

    Pros

    Overall good people both on the floor and in limited management positions. The owner always had a positive outlook and goes out of his way to make people welcome.

    Cons

    Middle management is terrible. Everybody and their brother is a vice-president. Many middle managers have their own little kingdoms and God forbid you disagree with them. Far too much bureaucracy for a smaller company. Getting a simple project done could take upwards of a year (if you're lucky). Projects are ill-defined at the start many times and requirements change constantly. There did not seem to be much forward planning, projects were typically in response to something the competitor already had in the market. Vacation benefits were terrible.
