    Pros

    The company is profitable year after year. This is beneficial to those at the top. Otherwise there is no incentive to working hard.

    Cons

    Employees had to work off the clock and not get paid in the summer.
    Headcount is too low while employees are overworked.
    No work/life balance.
    Poor communication within the company.
    Impotent HR controlled by upper management that allows people with power to wield it unchecked.
    No formal training of new employees or uniform protocols. Leads to everyone doing everything differently.
    Employees were required to come to work right after Hurricane Sandy on Oct 31 even though most live outside the city, public transportation was not operating and many did not have power at home.
    There is a total lack of humanity and respect for employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have HR professionals that focus on the employees' best interests and learn what employees' actual work loads are instead of eating and smoking all day.
    Treat employees like human beings.

    Current Employee - Operations in Cincinnati, OH

    Pros

    Competitive Pay, fresh coffee readily available-- and that is about it!

    Cons

    The culrture is one of complacency and entitlement; manufacturing and operations are stuck in the 1950's and the safety issues are frightening. The revolving door of managers will make you dizzy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people and invest in the plants. Failure to do so will bite you in the end. Key customers like Coke, Pepsi, Kraft, Unilever, and General Mills will go elsewhere (as supervisors, managers, and executives are) if you don't invest in people and processes in N. America.
