    Pros

    Plenty of mandatory overtime enforced. Orange walls and yellow floors keep the employees happy.

    Cons

    Required to work 60+ hours per week. Upper management lacks foresight and plans poorly leaving the workers to make up their slack. Poor bonuses. Never have had a review so I don't know how I am doing. Critical information is seldom shared even when it directly relates to your own job. Never gives raises in salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you know you are going to be producing a lot of product. Hire, train and then produce, don't threaten, force employees to make up for your mistakes in planning.

    Manufacture and R&D depatments locate in extremely small towns with bad infrastructure. It`s difficult to get to work for specialists from big cities. Relatively small salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Marketing department should be improved and focused for forecasts of the market.
