ProsMy facility had some great people who were willing to work to improve conditions and solve problems. Company is VERY Safety conscious and is willing to invest money to get results.

ConsYou had better be producing results every week or else you are disengaged (unless you have a Sr level protector to keep you off the radar)

Advice to Senior ManagementLetting a Plant Manager run his kingdom is the root of many problems.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
