Current Employee - Spiral Assistant in Neenah, WI

Pros

pay is fair in comparison to other companies , good chance at advancement . Benefits are better than some employers in the area . Very good vacation packages , have 3 weeks after 5 years of service , plus 3 personal days a year.

Cons

Blatant favoritism , ever increasing workload on hourly employees , too many supervisors , too much safety talk , but the only time safety is improved is when someone gets hurt or several close calls happen .

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start listening to your employees , we might not have fancy college degrees , but we do have a ton of real world experience . Be more proactive with safety , its time to walk the walk , not just talk about it.

    Pros

    Great management, employees are empowered, very open atmosphere, fantastic people, very competitive pay. Employees stay a long time here because it is such a great company.

    Cons

    Only one - Location. The actual place is great, small town with Florence close by so everything you could need is here. Geography is nice because you have several places two hours from here BUT the location is not big enough or popular enough to draw good teachers and schools. The elementary schools are AWESOME in many places here, but after that you are struggling to find good schools, even private.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep looking out to see what is next, stay ahead of the tough times by diversifying, and benchmarking other firms to identify best practices.
