    Pros

    Overtime helped compensate for low hourly rates.

    Cons

    Long hours required doing boring, repetitive assembly work.

    Advice to Management

    Management not intimate with process flow, quality issues, and origin of issues. Poor lighting in some of quality check areas and acceptable check parameters often poorly defined. Tools used to perform checks properly often came up missing.

    Pros

    Strong brand in the market
    Nice people who think about work/life balance
    Pockets of excellence
    Fair compensation for the amount of work that is expected

    Cons

    Senior leadership in building efficiency very weak. In fact most of them should be replaced, but more likely they will move the deck chairs around again. CEO/CFO pay themselves a ton while the company continues to underperform and be forced to lay off workers. Unable to leverage scale to deliver superior product to end customers, instead act more like a slow moving glacier. Innovation a talking point, not a part of culture.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to the board. Replace the senior leaders. In fact you should question why you have three divisions, the company would have more value broken apart. There is no benefit having all the divisions under one roof. All attempts to shift expertise between divisions fails, and investors cannot invest in a pure play business.
