    Pros

    Good entry level job for someone with a career change or looking to change industries.

    Cons

    Old school, still run like a mom and pop company from the 80s. Backward looking rather than proactive and.

    Advice to Management

    Take the advice of your engineers, Look at your old management and old school supervisors....they are running your business into the ground. Turn the lights off at night. Hire from the outside.

  2. Powell is overall a good place to work

    Flexibility in dealing with personal issues for office employees, good feedback from superiors (in most cases), Great medical benefits

    A few managers at NCD do not treat their people with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Some division managers should treat their employees better, but overall the level of respect is above average.
