    Pros

    The people are very congenial and supportive, it's a great environment and a great team. I felt like a valued asset in my department.

    Cons

    First month I didn't get much opportunity to showcase my potential, or do much of anything at all. After that though, I was given some more assignments that allowed me to prove my competence and receive more challenging and rewarding projects later on.

    Advice to Management

    Great company, great people, but there seems to be a lot of wasted/unnecessary human capital. If information were more centralized and easily accessible, there would be no need to fill someone's workday by searching for/calculating this information. If this were changed, there would be much less unnecessary labor and employees could put more focus into strategic direction than picking needles out of haystacks.

    Management vs. Workers...just like most places.

    Pros

    The line and manufacturing workers and the floor level managers are great people, almost a family like atmosphere.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't have much contact with the floor people, communication could be better. Middle management behaves like the line workers are an enemy that needs to be controlled.

    Advice to Management

    Need better communication going down through the company on the future plans and direction, and to foster a team mentallity rather than what seems to be an us vs. them battle.
