    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Everyone looks out for one another. Lead guys pitch in to get the job done.

    Cons

    Pisspoor management. Constant schedule changes. Sales drives production, 24 hour weeks, 70 hour weeks. You find out on Friday afternoon you'll have to work the weekend. If you work Sunday they like to send you home early Friday if they can to cut down on overtime pay. Absolutely NO planning. Unhealthy plant, toxic fumes, poor ventilation. Texas summers in this plant are murderous, 10 to 15 degrees hotter in the plant than out. 90 percent are Mexicans so management couldn't care less. High turnover, new faces every week. Laid us off for 2 weeks once. They told us they would file unemployment for us, so we would still get a little money. They lied. No pay. Too much trouble for them to file the paperwork I guess. Didn't tell us till we came back to work. Another 2 week delay for the little bit of pay. For months at a time you have to use a vacation day if you want a day off. Work /life isn't balanced, work has life in a sleeper hold and life's vision is fading fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pull your head out of your ass. How can other manufacturers work their people 40 hours a week, make a profit, and meet their production schedules? Fire your production scheduler, or retrain his retarded ass. Jackslap your sales guys for making promises someone else has to fill. Why can't you allow your people to have a regular home life? Some stability would be nice.

    Pros

    It seems like the company has a promising future. Lots of talk of growth, venturing into new markets. Mostly good people to work with.

    Cons

    The company has attention deficit disorder. It struggles with staying on track. If you want to know details you have to be in the right place at the right time. Monthly employee information meetings are not very valuable. Just stale repetition of departmental metrics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot communicate enough. Don't assume that everybody knows what is going on as well as don't assume that your people aren't interested in the small things.
