Pros

They are very safety oriented. The employees on the floor are hard working, honest, and are closer to you then family at times. Benefits are covered by employer.

Cons

There are a lot of management changes. Safety policy changes are daily. There is no bond between upper management and floor employees. They took away our Christmas bonuses that we counted on as part of our salary. They lead temporary employees on. They bought ISA without knowing the ins and outs of the company they were buying. There is no HR.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lead, follow, or get out of the way.

    Pros

    401 K, Vacation, Climate controlled,good pay,medical,dental.
    Safety oriented. Excellent Lean manufacturing program.

    Cons

    Unfair in promotions of female employees. Promoted male employee with less qualifications and less senority because he was sports oriented, which appealed to plant manager at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't set in your office. Get out on the floor and see what people do.

    Pros

    Pays some of the bills.

    Cons

    Minimal pay increase once a year and that only covers the increase in insurance costs. Nothing extra for your pocket. NOT family friendly at all. You are just a seat filler to the company. Nothing more. They do not care about the individuals. Lower level mgmt is horrible. If you ever move you you have to check your conscience at the door. No room for compassion. There are better companies out there. This one better get with the times quickly. Must learn how to allow employees to balance work/family. Don't be sick either. No sick time and you get charged and "event" for missing work. Even with a doctor's note. Too many cons to name.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the "little" people. Reward those that work hard. Make family a priority. Pay better.
