    Pros

    Friendly people. Decent benefits. Pay seems reasonable.

    Cons

    Lot's of people are overworked. Everything is a "fire" and there isn't a lot of true direction on projects due to engineers that have no management experience being promoted to management.
    The few bad apples are hard to get rid of.
    The company touts "Respect for People" however, the President is the worst offender. Hard to find it more than a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Get a degree in management...you're a manager after all.

    Pros

    - able to work in a "large" scale manufacturing company
    - great PR / Marketing Department
    - excessive bonus and pay structure for management
    - constantly hiring

    Cons

    -High Employee Turnover. No director level personnel has been their more than two years. Constantly looking for employees thus need a great marketing group
    - HR is extremely weak. They do not initially offer healthcare the first three months of employment. Must attempt to negotiate but will waive if going for PM role.
    - The "con" of the pay structure is that the senior level management is constantly looking to place blame to protect their bonus and thus leads to high employee turnover. Divisions fight against each other over "pennies"
    - The employee culture/management is extremely arrogant and aggressive.
    - "Claim" they have a corporate charter that includes respect for employees. Yet the worst offenders are Director of PM and Director of Purchasing
    - The corporate structure has no R&D department thus the business is not advancing long term

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on your salary/bonus and invest in the long term health of your employees and future.
