Pros

Challenging work load, very fast paced and interesting work, easier if you have an Engineering Degree. Travel opportunities abound.

Cons

Very harsh management, high turnover and no legacy knowledge sharing with new hires. Training is selective as far as the usable transfer of info. Senior management can be unreasonable and abusive and this trickles down thru the ranks

Advice to Management

Stop management by fear especially with relocated employees. See the value in long term employees

    Pros

    Great product, strong brand, great benefits (incl. company health center), excellent president.

    Cons

    Strange that the last two positive management reviews were posted just after upper management found out about the negative reviews on this website....
    Purchasing and engineering jobs are brutal which is reflected in the high turnover rate among purchasing and engineering jobs. Departments work against each other rather than together. Key managers try to out-do each other rather than having the best for the company in mind. Top management has zero trust in their middle management and micro manages all decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Promote team work between the departments and start trusting the people you hired. Set realistic goals.

    Pros

    I enjoy the closeness that the employees enjoy with supervisors and management team. Management is approachable and has an open door policy the employees enjoy and take advantage of. I always feel as if I'm coming home when I come to work.

    Cons

    None that I can think of; I am very content. Well, only the fact that we do not have a Starbucks Cafe on premises to get my regular java jolt.
