    Pros

    As a contractor I was not under purview of HR so my performance was judged directly by my manager

    Cons

    Since this was a manufacturing plant, the whole atmosphere depended on the plant manager in charge and could quickly go south

    Advice to Management

    Be less aloof from employees


  2. Long hours, low wages, good people overall

    Pros

    Company contributes to 401(k) even if employee does not. Long hours but flexible and understanding about time off. Great opportunity to learn different aspects of manufacturing process. Lots of horizontal shuffling as opposed to vertical promotions.

    Cons

    The wages were a bit low but the abundance of overtime ensured a decent take home paycheck. Not very many pay increases or promotions and when the promotions did come it seemed to be based more on nepotism and favoritism than merit. Safety never seemed to be a priority.

    Advice to Management

    Create a better preventive maintenance schedule. Place a stronger emphasis on safety. Provide a training program with standard operating procedures for incoming employees
