Pros

Not to much possitive to say about the company. They really seem more about the inside group then about the company or the people.

Cons

Young people with little experience are often hired over people of real experience. It creates an atmosphere where incompetent management can gain suporters. Young inexperienced people tend to go along with the program and are moldable. Experienced people won't put up with it.

Advice to Management

If the departments are hiring inexperienced people, it's a red flag. Consider the risk in these departments to be very high!

    Pros

    Job is in Florida which has no State income taxes. That does not come close to compensating for low salaries at this company

    Cons

    Very weak salaries and benefits package. Promise of bonuses do not come true due to cost structure caused when Kimball purchased Reptron. Long hours required of salaried staff. Equipment is old and outdated and provides difficulty when trying to meet quality requirements of the customer. This company wants to compete with the big boys (e.g. Flex, celestica, plexus, jabil, foxconn), but they never will. They can't provide the service level of the larger EMS providers so they have to work their employees like dogs to meet a lower price level. Customer base is the scraps the big players in the industry do not want.

    Advice to Management

    Sell out to larger company

    Pros

    If your charming and mindless with minimal skills you will fit right in. Smile and nod with every thing they say.

    Cons

    The company is a popularity contest with managers who could not tie their shoes and employees who are let go if they say anything. Perfect place if you want to live a lie and have a brown nose.

    Advice to Management

    Take the golden parachute. I am not sure this company can be saved from what is inevitable at this point.
