Pros

The pay was competitive, The manager (SH) is competent and has been in the role a long time.

Cons

Lots of nepotism, the deputy managers and leads are very aggressive. The leads don't seem competent in the area they are leading. No communication, you have to research everything yourself. There are cliques and brown-nosing is a must to receive good increases. Too many different teams and I was often finding out information about my team from cross-talk from people outside the team. The constant change of work-order/pay codes gave an increasing sense of disorganization - at one point forcing employees to leave an area with one day notice because their contract expired.

Advice to Management

Hire people who know the job, and who know how to manage and not lead by fear and intimidation

    Pros

    NG still maintains a pension program along with a 401k (100% matching up to 4%). Pay is reasonable (competitive) and the location can't be beat.

    Cons

    Raises are predictable (3-5% based on performance). They award a 2-3% bonus each year to avoid giving out larger raises. The facilities are average at best. Vacation starts at 12 days and only improves to 15 days after 10 years, 20 days after 20 years. Recognition is infrequent and usually insignificant monetarily.

    Advice to Management

    Recognition and respect for your employees goes a long way. Intimidation tactics and threats do not. Earn the respect of your workers and they will go the extra mile for you. Respect the fact that family, not the company, comes first.
