It used to be a good company before they hired so many management.

Pros

For hourly employees it's OK because overtime is offered. The compressed work week allows many days off. They pay a percentage for continued education.

Cons

The companies management could use some work. On the day shifts you have about six leads/supervisors for 30 production technicians on shift. That does not include the fab manager and director. That is more management than during the six inch upgrades. I do not understand how that is lean manufacturing. The production floor has high turnover because of this. Equipment support also has two directors than do not make very educated decisions, Process engineering also has too many managers with one per area. This facility is too small for that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop hiring managers with no education. They are the a big factor in why production has a very low morale. The managers should take care of there own areas and not try to constantly make other departments fight. Why not make two production supervisors that can split up the work equally. Remove the surplus managers in all areas that do not do much.

    Pros

    Good fundamentals in training and procedures, i.e documentation process flow

    Cons

    Production makes the money for everyone but have least job security and lowest pay. Management is an illusion as everyone associated with "management" is waiting for the left over scraps from David Alldrich after he pilfers the profits with his budy Jim Cramer
