    Pros

    Large company and the compensation is comprable to the industry standard. The pace is fast and there are a lot of oportunities to make a difference if you are in the right roll.

    Cons

    Recent restructure lead to a lot of people in new roles without any plan to train them, structure what the new job duties are, and what the goals are. There is a lack of communication and follow through on new initiatives both corprate and localy. A lot of talk about safety but little action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many new initiatives constantly starting and the old ones are not completed or canceled. In some cases they oppose one another. Chose the imortant ones, communicate them, track their progress and follow through to completion.

    Pros

    Owens is a big company and appears to have opportunity for growth arising out of Corporate re-shaping. There are very challenging learning experiences for those seeking Fortune 500 structure.

    Cons

    It is very very busy with alot of work to do. There is a slim staff and presenting difficulty. It is difficult to accomplish tasks to the extent needed due to lack of appropriate workforce resources. The Union environment also presents alot of problems when trying to make progress improvements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue fostering teamwork and recognizing those that perform above and beyond the job. Develop some way to compensate accordingly for the dedication and work invested.
