Pros

If you're local to the area.
If you're a new graduate and are looking for an entry level position.
If you're in operations.

Cons

Completely agree with the first reviewer. In this day and age, computer and internet usage for NuSil's own work related research is a huge obstacle.

Pay and benefits are not nearly competitive even-though the company makes millions and the cost of living in Santa Barbara is more expensive than average.

Flexible hours or telecommute don't exist to accommodate families.

Poor selection of some managers and supervisors, in that they don't seem to be held accountable and some are reactionary. Employees are not heard at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Computer monitoring is excessive and disproportionate.
Employees are not heard at all.

    Pros

    Easy place to be part of change and make a difference. You can add a lot to your resume in a short period of time and turn yourself into a marketable weapon.

    Cons

    The salary is terrible. If you make it to higher pay brackets, you may be offered equity sharing, but this only applies to ~10% of the company. Everyone else slaves on in poverty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You say you want to be an "employer of choice" but you don't specify for whom. The base salaries are too low to attract and keep top performers, other than the small handful of people who don't know what they are worth, or have other things tying them to the job or the area.

    Ditch the antiquated and ineffective view on pay and look to better companies as a model. Ultimately, the mediocre pay will generate a mediocre workforce and mediocre results. Why do you think we have to spend so much time and resource digging ourselves out of the operational hole that we are in now?

    Pros

    Friendly people, benefits are so so, paid holidays, and full time work especially when there is down time.

    Cons

    The cons to this job are many; let us start with management. Bad managers, I mean terrible management skills, I've seen better leadership at a McDonald's.
    Although the company frowns about shift vs shift bickering and drama they actually perpetuate it by favoring the employees that upper management work with. The first shift have all the perks: laziness, what equipment they choose to work on, no forced weekend work, no real consequences once an incident occurs, and day to day activities are not supervised.
    The other shifts are not that much better, the night shift complain constantly yet they do less work and get paid more. The swing shift are a bunch of suckers, they do all the work and get screwed the most and has the least workers.
    There is no clear way to advance within the company, very little opportunity for the average Joe. Wages are below the industry standard and they have a poor training program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Stop favoring employees
    2. Better wages
    3. Get a better training program
    4. Cheaper medical insurance
    5. Get better organized especially with manufacturing scheduling
    6. lead by example, make the company a choice of employment or forever be a training facility for better companies out there.
    7. Update the equipment and buy more valued equipment employees need.
