Pros

Large scale continuous manufacturing experience is valuable. Training opportunities are readily available. Easy access to subject matter experts. Lots of travel involved.

Cons

Have to navigate through excessive bureaucracy. Difficult to get projects funded. Low salary. Mediocre benefits (ie company match lower than others, 401(k) not fully vested until three years).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the mills more autonomy. Put more emphasis on quality and service. Make salary and benefits more competitive to retain engineers.

    Getting oriented with inter-office politics can take a long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It could help to provide more public opportunities for leadership and networking amongst employees aside from those on the highly promotable "fast track".
