Can be a fun and challenging place to work.

Division III (Former Employee)
Eynon, PA

ProsGreat compensation. Great health care plans. Superb retirement package
Upgraded shop. Newer tools. Most fellow employees are pretty cool. Would have liked to stayed if management changes.

ConsIt's a union shop so expect to be trampled on and taken with a grain of salt.
job sustainability is sub-par. Half the people in there can retire and save some jobs but wont.
union has its favorites and if its not you watch out.
Management lacks follow through and communication skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit worrying about the stupid things and focus on the job at hand. Same goed to the union officials. In summary GROW A PAIR....

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It is apparent the good old boys network is failing, and hiring retired military officers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

    Great until the last 4 years.

    Senior Buyer (Former Employee)

    Pros: Very few now, focus is good new for the Wall… Cons: Focus is "share holder value". Read the annual report to find who the share holders are.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
