Pros

I find it difficult to see any of the advantages. If you are in manufacturing you need to speak Polish Russian or Chinese to keep your job. Their stock prices continue to make you money but they make it clear they do not want to keep manufacturing in this country. They would sell out their own mother for the short term buck.

Cons

They talk alot about valueing their employees but just tell them something they don't want hear sometime and you will see your true net worth. Diffrences in opinions will not be tolerated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating your employees with a little respect. Alot of 20+ year veterans are treated as though they are nothing more than a numbered tool that needs to be replaced with the newest version of inexperianced college grad.

    Pros

    Payment is higher than average; lots of interesting projects; competitive benefits

    Cons

    Unstable market place in the region, terrible public schools; senior management changes their priorities several times per year, stressing workers, lowering effectiveness and creating unnecessary stress to employees. Many good and experience coworkers are leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should identify obtainable goals at the beginning of the year and stick to those by properly flowing down the objectives of the year. Flip-flopping directions given to employees every quarter only generates unnecessary work to employees demoralizing the workforce.
