Pros

Very happy with peers. A lot of great people to work with.

Cons

The work seems to be biased by individual manager agendas. When you have politically driven work and sneaky / ambitious management who are interested in looking good to their superiors, it creates an environment ripe with partisans - those who the managers favor vs those who don't. Progress for those who don't obviously is non-existent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Newsflash - the Peak Performance and Leadership development program is not working! Stop measuring this program by surveying the managers. Survey the ones who receive the leadership..and not just once a year with the 360 degree reviews. Managers find ways to identify the ones who give negative reviews..and punish them.

    An uncaring company of all the boots on the ground workforce causes rapid burnout.

    Cons

    Constant confusion about work requirements. Not enough people on the ground to operate the plants safely. Poor training practices if any training is given. Due to lack of people, placing in positions that they are not trained or skilled to perform. A total lack of respect of the general employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more field employees. Put people in there expertise.

    Pros

    Good people and a reasonable approach to issues. the management style is fairly fluid management. Smaller groups are temporarily created to address issues with full senior management support to avoid red-tape.

    Cons

    The compensation system is overly complex and lower than it probably should be relative to competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally the leadership is doing a good job so I would suggest maintaining the same style. A better records management system would be helpful.
