ProsHardworking, friendly hourly workers. Some talented management. DART has taken over and will certainly shake things up which will no doubt force some old thinking out the door.

ConsTalented management is stifled by peer managers and are not willing to stick their neck out for something they believe in. The bar is set very low and is often not reached. management does not empower their supervisors or hourlys to contribute to improvement. It all starts at the top and the top doesnt expect very much

Advice to Senior ManagementExpect more out of yourself and your subordinates. Roll with the punches because without change you are already being out produced by Asia and other producers int he US.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
