    Pros

    -The pay is extrememly competitive. -Work-life balance policy. -There are some really great supervisors. -Not expected to work significany overtime.

    Cons

    -It can be a bit of a boys' club. Sometimes women are given a hard time when they take maternity leave, or try to utilize the work-life balance policy. No one will admit it, but there is still a boys' club at the top. The most successful women are the ones who pretend they aren't. -Your experience and opinion of the company can vary greatly depending on your supervisor. I have had two really great supervisors and one that makes me want to leave the company today. -Lack of training. They are trying to change this, but it's a hard culture to change. -There is a ridiculous amount of paperwork. Nothing gets approved without upper level management signing off. -Cross functional interaction can be tense at times. -Many of the tasks are simply exercises in pushing numbers around.

    Advice to Management

    Cut out the paperwork, the bureaucracy and the boys' club mentality. This is 2014-- get with the "flex" work program-- and make sure the working level gets the memo!

    Pros

    Fast paced and exciting, working in a manufacturing sector that has a direct affect on community and economy.

    Cons

    Cyclical nature of the business and continual need to reduce costs which results in headcount reduction.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on solutions instead of blame. Post mortems should only be to learn and prevent recurrence
