    Pros

    Over the people at the company are pretty competent. Flexible managers, relatively good benefits. Small company, which means you need to interact with people from a variety of different departments, giving you the opportunity to learn a lot of things.

    Cons

    Work can get repetitive. Products don't seem to be going anywhere, and the company doesn't seem to be doing that well financially.

    Advice to Management

    Company needs a new direction. Going "green" doesn't really work when the products you are producing aren't competitive on speed or features.

    You need to be friends with Upper Management to succeed here.

    Pros

    Reasonable business future.
    Fair pay for the job grades.
    Friendly workforce
    Good working hours.
    Climate control is good.

    Cons

    Nepotism and the "good ole boy syndrome" are the guidelines for Upper Management. The environment is definitely not conducive to a good attitude. The Corporate CEO has been documented in the news as having lied about his education and this lack of integrity flows right down the line into the Management of at least two of the U.S. Divisions.

    Advice to Management

    Get out on the production floor and mingle more with your workforce. You act like you are elite which alienates you from most of the regular employees.
