    Pros

    Not a stable company to work and the salary is not good too

    Cons

    My conclusion is the company need build up the reputation. Do not try to hire a lot of people then announce to lay off many times, that's a bad news for the company.

    Pros

    they usually have plenty of jobs and more ot than i need. the issue now is that all work is going over seas and to mexico. so the layoffs begin again.

    Cons

    too much ot then the layoffs come seems like the manufacturing environment will not wait till monday. its not impossible to work there if we give up all our quality of life like family and freinds.

    Advice to Management

    learn to schedule work and employees.

    Pros

    Some teams have stronger members than others. Those with strong teams gives great opportunity to learn in order to develop knowledge under your belt. Good place to accumulate years and knowledge of experience for your own career.

    Cons

    Pay is low with currently no opportunity for significant raises or advancement. Layoffs going on in some sites consistently causing constant concern.
