A positive work environment with generally knowledgable management.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Hartford, CT

Pros-Gain work experience in a very unique sector of the metal industry
-Very hands on work with hands off management
-Independent problem solving

Cons-The hourly workers are resistant to change in policies and system changes
-The inventory systems were not well designed to accurately maintain a solids department running constant production processes

Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to put the people who not only get things done, but get them done the right way in charge. There are too many people who take detrimental shortcuts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
