Pros

The company focuses on making cutting edge products, using the latest technology. First Quality is ethical in their business dealings. Aggressively chases efficiency and sustainability. Privately held, with a focus on long term growth rather than short term gains. Management is actively involved.

Cons

Weak development path for advancement. Staff has been cut to the absolute minimum in each role. You can feel isolated in your position with no mentor, so you are on your own, sink or swim. This can lead to employees feeling like management does not care, the truth is that there is very few layers and they are stretched so thin they don't have time to address employee issues.

Advice to Management

Recognize success, realize that employees can be developed into leaders with the right plan.

    Pros

    Owners were committed to the business and willing to invest in the company. The central PA manufacturing locations seemed like good places to work for people already living in those areas. If you want to stay with the company long term, there are opportunities.

    Cons

    Information was kept very secret so that it was hard to get the job done in certain functions. Direction was not always given to people at all levels resulting in confusion. Nepotism was also an issue as most key managers seemed to be related to the owners some how.
