Pros

Good training, most management is dedicated. Great parties for holidays.

Cons

From the top down(from what I have seen, I am bottom of the bottom) there is a fair amount of petty arguing and an attitude of "I don't like you and I'm going to get you fired." There are people who have been with the company for less than 5 years who believe that they have what they call "pull" around the place. And while lying and setting up for failure is common, the people who get fired because of it would probably get fired anyway. Also there is a feeling of control that you get from middle management, which i guess is supposed to take the form of comfort, but usually ends up sounding asinine. Perfect example, I am writing this review anonymously because we were told that if we write anything online about the company we would be instantly terminated. Ridiculous. Bottom line is this - the company is saturated with people who are unhappy in their jobs, and their lives and it shows. A constant feeling of hatred and animosity throughout.

one more thing, you are made to feel that the wage you are earning is so much better then everywhere else, when in fact it is comparable at best.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take advice from the hundreds of disgruntled employees and they may become helpful. Learn to be tactful, even if it's a stupid idea you have no need to tell them that. They don't even have a suggestion box. You are made to feel worthless, and as a result almost everyone under general manager level is looking for other work secretly. This exact problem has led to other companies failing, workers are assets, not machines.

    Pros

    Great place to gain a check until you find a mediocre job. Was minutes away from where I lived. Saved hundreds of dollars on gas.

    Cons

    Executive management all the way down lack any sense of leadership. This is a true blue corporate American company, with plenty of Chinese overtime. Don't know what Chinese overtime is, google it. You will laugh and steer clear of this company.

    Company will invest in everything but the employees. Instead, we were offered tennis, golf and baseball tickets, along with between 1-3% raises, if that. Rumor has it that the owner states that the Christmas party is our bonus. Wow! Really?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When are you going to figure out that we're assets? You commit to us, and we will bust our behinds for you. If you continue to be self-serving, we will continue to do just enough. It start with you. It ends with us. On that note, I wish you an overdue adieu.
