    Pros

    Manufacturing plants provde good benefits and bonus program. My location utilizes a team-oriented approach. Great hiring process. Extremely skilled and stable workforce

    Cons

    Senior staff is slow to make decisions. Corporate office is reluctant to embrace new technologies and change. Decision making at the plants is too restricted by the corporate office.
