The pay is well above average
Flexible work schedule

Cons

Job security is a concern
Health benefits are sub par
management is resistant to change.
The organization is pretty flat so there is little if any room for advancement
The company is very reactive!!! There is no clear direction at the plant level
The data and other systems are lacking and sometimes non existent

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set a clear direction for the organization and follow it. Be open to change

    Current Employee - Director of Engineering

    Pros

    benefits
    pay is better than most areas in this rural area
    union really does have power and control as it should

    Cons

    an investment firm owns it now
    no job security for anyone, whether union, or salaried or top management and salaries
    the investment firm now tries to run the company
    all six figure incomes were terminated due to economy, no warn act or seniority or merit taken into consideration...which left the older ones who had worked up the ranks go, at least with union they had to abide by their seniority...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    as a director, you all already know, nobody is safe, i would advise anybody taking on a job there, that there had been a complete overhaul of the entire plant, management too, as well as union workers, and the investment firm with no knowlege is now trying to run the plant, cutting down way too many workers, and are putting inexperienced young 30 something ,non managers in top jobs to save money...if you take a job there, always keep your eyes open for another one just in case...
