Pros

Very professional people that I worked with in the Research area. Making products that help people improve their lives is rewarding.

Cons

We would get started on projects and then have the funding cut for a quarter, or a year, then get restarted. Budget priorities seemed to always be shifting.

Advice to Management

Keep up the six-sigma Green Belt/Black Belt training programs, it will pay major dividends in no time.

    Pros

    Generally clean, well-kept facilities
    On-site Cafeteria
    Compensation is OK, unless you work B&G at minimum wage

    Cons

    Job Security - Mass Layoffs and Re-Hiring within the same year
    Temp Work - Never assume management reviews or full-time hiring dates will be kept.
    Benefits - Kelly Service 1-2% year end "bonus" paid after 1st year - not PTO

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your temp workers like cattle - shuffling from one job to another with no hope of direct hire. A coworker did this for 6 years before being replaced by a full-time employee from another plant.

  2. Decent company

    Pros

    Nice people to work with

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless as to what happens within the company. Our distributor hired an IT professional to run operations... He then proceeded to run a multi million dollar operation into the ground before corporate took it back. The guy used to scream at me if I gave the ops manager advice. He finally fired me for being too honest.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let idiots like Shane Foss have a distributorship again. Pay attention to the little guy, he knows a lot more than you think!
