Great product, Stable job, Decent pay, Caring Employer - Overall a great Manufacturing Company

Manufacturing Engineer II (Current Employee) Savannah, GA

ProsPros are the product is best in class, so everyone is proud to be a part of it. The way they structure the business, they dot get affected much by economy swings which means mostly everyone has job stability. The pay is not the greatest, but its pretty standard considering it is manufacturing. Management in most areas genuinely care about employees personal and professional well being and constantly encourage employee learning and development. Timings within manufacturing are 4 x 10 work-weeks which is pretty hard during the weekdays, but you get 3 days of weekend off to recharge, so its not so bad after all. People are great to work with. Also upper management is very knowledgeable and promotions for most part are given to qualified candidates only. So in summary, I would day a really good manufacturing company to work for.

ConsCons I would say are pretty much the same you find everywhere in American Manufacturing. Legacy systems, old practices which are hard to change, focus on lean without understanding lean completely, vertically oriented functioning with silo mentalities. A lot of focus and energy is spent on fire-fighting issues rather than fixing the process which is at the root of the issue. Also Savannah is a decent city, with some good beaches nearby, but its not the greatest place to be on earth. Also employees can use a bit more vacation time off.

Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand lean before trying to implement it. Migrate from a vertically oriented organization to a more horizontal functioning. Fix processes instead of issues. Empower the workers to play a much more active role in any improvement initiatives because they are the ones who touch the product hands on and have a wealth of knowledge. Also engineers/designers should spend more time working hands on with the product instead of just creating design models in offices.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
