Almost no sense of job security

Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee) Reading, PA

ProsMost co-workers are very nice, knowledgeable, and work hard.
Schedule is somewhat flexible even for manufacturing personnel.
Additional training and education is available if you're willing to take the initiative, it's not typically offered, one has to inquire.
Vacation time is accrued quickly, 4 weeks at 5 years.

ConsRe-orgs seem to be the norm. Usually resulting in layoffs or firings.
Compensation is not competitive compared to similar companies.
Compensation within the company is not very fair, same positions/responsibilities can have significant differences between salaries.
Tenure and experience seem to be liabilities, often the ones with the most are the first to go.
Poor communication between facilities, management and employees, and between departments.
Lack of leadership. Plants bicker about trivial costs instead of looking at the whole picture of the company.
Upper management claims to want to attract and retain top talent, but does almost the exact opposite in practice.

Advice to Senior ManagementThree words; transparency, accountability, teamwork.
Be more transparent on strategic goals and initiatives and what they mean to each plant and individual employees, foster communication between management and employees.
Hold employees at all levels accountable for their work. Offer better incentives for performers and seek the cause for poor performance first then offer constructive improvement ideas before the pink slip.
Lastly, promote teamwork and a "company" attitude rather than the competitive finger-pointing that occurs between plants and departments today.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
