Pros

data/analytically driven, systematic with protocols and processes. knowledgeable and resourcesful team members, especially management (director and president). often encouraged us to use innovative thinking to continually refine strategies and processes behind product management, service and delivery to customers. great training programs. hindsight is 20/20 - knowing what i know now (in another company)... genera's overall compensation (salary, bonus, medical/health) is more competitive than my current, genera provides challenges/exposure to different scope/functions (i'm limited in my current role at new company - not enabling to grow/learn).

Cons

was there for 7 years.. difficult at beginning with so much to learn (product, proctocol, procedure, customers, markets), but this stretched me in a positive sense. might be difficult for other people with character to looking to do one thing only. this place may be too quiet for some (not good for jabber mouth - which can be annoying), as many employees are focused on their activites.

Advice to Management

they do some annual group activity, but would be great to increase/frequent activities... especially for the top performers/contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Been in the company for few months and found out that this company is very poorly managed and surprised no one complained about it yet. They are specialized in hiring fresh college grads who needs visa to stay in the state and doesn't mind the way below market pay. a few unspoken rule:
    1. Keep your mouth shut in the office, or you won't last for 2 weeks
    2. You are not allowed to go out for lunch with coworkers because of the upper management do not want people to talk behind their back,
    3. Come in early and stay for extra 3~4 hrs is required even if you finish your work on time.
    4. No ideas allowed, they like people who follow their rules.
    5. get ready to be yell at out in the open, they do not treat employees with dignity.
    Company size is quite small, about 15 people in the office with extremely high turn over rate, for the few months I was there, counted 8 people had came and go in the office of 15 employees.
    Over all, I would not recommend this company to my friends.

    Pros

    None.. no work, no where to go for now..

    Cons

    Extremely bad management, plant being managed by employee not qualified in management. Favoritism with their own race, (Asian). Horrible pay, 2011 .3 to .10 cent raise. With 75% of the employees being temps for several years, you figure they would be able to give plant employees a reasonable raise. Company mentions in meetings through out the year that they make miilions of dollars a year, when it comes to raise time, their answer is it was a bad year. Poor language skills, extremely hard to understand what they are saying.. winter warehouse is extremely cold, because they turn heaters off at night because some Jackson guy doesn't want a high bill, forced to wear heavy coats, while the office is nice and cozy. And yes folks all this happens at the warehouse in Illinois, so if you would like to work there make sure your Asian, you'll love it, other race go elsewhere.. warehouse has office hours which is ridiculous, some people do have a life and family to go to..

    Advice to Management

    Someone from Corporate should investigate how this plant is being ran and how employees are being treated. Perhaps take a little of your precious time to speak to a few employees. As management really is extra poor.
