Pros

Pay and benefits are competitive for the area. The company is very proactive with respect to systems and technology, especially for the industry they are in.

Cons

Succession planning and career mapping are virtually non-existent. The company frequently hires at all levels from outside and rarely promotes from within. Politics run extremely deep and hinder the company from capitalizing on the systems and infrastructure that exists.

Advice to Management

Promotion must come from within if the company wishes to start succeeding due to its talent and not to market-driven circumstances. Succession planning needs to actually be implemented, not just talked about.

    Corporate HR needs to talk to the employees rather than believing what the local HR Manager is telling them.

    Pros

    Good Benefits
    Great Co-workers
    Family-owned company with family values

    Cons

    Lower than average wages when compared with other mining and manufacturing businesses in the same geographical area.
    Corporate upper management needs to communicate with the employees and take their complaints seriously rather than relying on only what the managers tell them.

    Advice to Management

    Take employee complaints seriously and spend some time talking to the employees one-on-one. There are real concerns at the Rock Springs location ranging from safety violations to unethical and unfair employment practices. Your local managers are only telling you what they want you to hear.
