Good Potential, but Employee's Get In Their Own Way Sometimes

Manager (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

ProsMost employees are good people who want to put a good product out to the customers. The facility hits many of their goals and can tackle a project with the best of them. The union can sometimes cause too much of an uproar about non-issues. Overall, they do seem to have good, honest, hard working employees in spite of themselves.

Good pay for the work that is performed.

Retirement benefits are excellent.

Healthcare benefits are average.

ConsCorporate and regional managers can implement relatively unreasonable initiatives with little/no site feedback or input.

Many things are controlled from Cleveland, not allowing creative freedom for running the operation.

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement standards and guidelines, but keep the mandating of certain activities and procedures to a minimum. Allow the good workers you hire to run your facilities to use their brains and make things happen for themselves. If everything is mandated, all you have are drones spouting off mandates from Cleveland.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
