Silo walls are very high

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Chaska, MN

ProsMajority of production staff are easy to get along with and will help out as needed. Decent schedule. Great 2nd shift production manager

ConsThe most important thing for this company is the almighty dollar. Upper management is more interested in profits than of spending the appropriate amount of money to develop excellent tools. They want you to volunteer to help with field work, but you have to pay for all travel expenses and then submit a bill for reimbursement. Who's got that kind of credit line sitting around when you are working and having to pay bills for a family. No thanks!

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you continue to build upon a constantly shifting base, your business will not survive. Pay the money to develop the tools, so they will work the first time when they hit the field.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
