Pros

Worked 20 years in production which was a challenging, yet rewarding experience. Was allowed to go back to school to work toward being Lab tech certified. Since then have even been more challenged. Very interesting job working for the last 2 years in this part of the company.

Cons

Seems like there is a point in ones career that it does not pay to attempt to improve. Upon being promoted, was informed of being cut in pay.

Advice to Management

Opportunities for advancement for employees with many years of service needs to be easier to understand. Examples: Pay, rate of advancement in new job, clearer expectations. Be more open and honest.

    Pros

    Diverse work group. Lots of opportunity for growth. The company has strong Structured Training Programs and will offer financial assistance to continue higher education.

    Cons

    Cost of insurance for the rank and file has increased. Compensation in the way of bonuses and incentives are somewhat one-sided favoring upper managment vs. Rank and file employees.

    Advice to Management

    Endeavor to Persevere!

  2. Most everyone works together and is friendly with one another.

    Pros

    Supervision is fare and work is evenly distributed. There are different shifts available to work which helps when it comes to the needs of your family. Just a few of the perks include paid holidays, one personal day, paid vacation. You are also given opportunities to grow. The company is community-oriented and volunteer work is encouraged. Heatlhy living and exercise are encouraged also. There are facilties available for exercise.

    Cons

    In my department, those with senority get to choose what area and what shift they so choose to work in each year. This makes it hard for those who are newer employees to have to adjust their schedules and balance family/child care needs yearly. However, this is a perk for those who have senority.

    Advice to Management

    More frequent hands-on reminder training for specific issues would be helpful.
