Pros

There are a few unique individuals here that are some of the best people I've known and worked with.
This company used to be run by great people and had great values.

Cons

Gross mis-management with no accountability for anyone below a management position.
American engineers are slowly being kicked out in favor of a team in India, those remaining are expected to finish the same workload. There are no opportunities for advancement or improvement. Benefits here are just above the bottom of the barrel, however it seems management receives much better hidden benefits and certainly more paid time off than the grunts. Management here is entrenched and disinterested in existing employees. Some groups have such high turnover that you can't remember the new team members names.

The management here has a long history of promising you one thing and breaking it months later. Any offers from them are no better than flat out lies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Why bother with advice, any interest or compassion from the top is completely fake.
It seems the entire goal is to maximize profits while crushing any remaining hope in the existing employee base. Possibly a long term goal of shuttering the entire company.

    This is a very misogynist company and a miserable place to work.

    Pros

    None, none, none, zero, zilch

    Cons

    Decisions are very sporadic and not backed-up. You are expected to do a ridiculous amount of work with no rewards or bonuses. The company practices are outdated, wasting a large amount of money, time and resources. Also, there is loud banging from factory equipment, which occurs daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new management!

    Pros

    Excellent products and great talented individuals work here. Management is now catching up to the employees in terms of a more caring and solid work environment. New managers are much improved and they are more conscious of the floor employees and what they need to succeed. Office staff is very talented and it is exciting to see where we can go!
    New HR team is greatly improved and make an effort to be in front of folks and take care of issues right away. Seem to be adding add a better quality of staff as well and good improvements in benefits and 401k match.

    Cons

    Wish the interior of the building was a bit nicer and better food/eating places but hey this is not a restaurant. Still could use a bit of an update in Supervisor level!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve supervisors and keep improving the caring attitude towards all employees. Great strides have been taken however so keep it up. Thanks for hiring a great HR team to go along with great safety and quality team. Thanks for imrproved 401k match now can we get a few more vacation days? I know am getting greedy.
