Pros

Great group of dedicated people trying to make a difference and move the company forward. Many locations and talented people.

Cons

Culture promotes behaviors that might be good for an individual, despite actions that negatively impact adjacent functions. Poor work-life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate plan to all people at all levels. Treat people like real people, not just headcount.

    Unfair performance appraisals are utilized to drive performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate cleaned up the site to some degree during 2013 by firing the plant manager, but others with non competitive backgrounds remain. Site needs a good HR department to build a good culture. Some managers from legacy sites just don't get is. Some of the most senior folks lack basic qualifications.
