Pros

- Exposure to automotive interior industry - Plant managers, operation directors, and senior level management are usually accessible - It's a growing company

Cons

- Feedback from the production floor to management is disregarded - No communication between departments (operations, quality, sales, engineering, etc) - A majority of resources are allocated to one plant and department - No "one team, one goal" mentality - High attrition - Decisions made by middle and upper management are hardly supported by numerical data - "Good Ol' Boy" mentality is spreading like a California wildfire - No enforcement of ethics - No structured training for non-production staff

Advice to Management

- An ethics policy needs to be developed an enforced by supper management. - Invest in current employees. - Put an end to the "Good Ol' Boy" mentality

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Willing to promote from within; many employees have worked there in various capacities for 10+ years. Good use of cross-functional teams to solve problems and bring forward fresh ideas.

    Cons

    Pay is competitive for new hires but falls behind for those who stay, unless there is a competitive threat presented. Smaller size affords less promotion opportunities than at larger companies. Generally good communication throughout organization.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize micromanagement and exercise more trust in the chain of command to strengthen the overall organization.
