  1. Good thing the 401K is good because the compensation increases aren't.

    Pros

    The 401K is better than most other companies I have looked into. They have also increased time off to 20 per year starting with roll over. The vacations days are a little better than most companies as well with a full week off around Christmas. Flexable start times between 7 and 9. Easy to handle projects and daily work.

    Cons

    Compensation increases are as low as 2%, down from 3%. Compensations are based on a bell curve instead of pure merrit, with a vast majority getting the minimum or very close to it, yet individuals are not allowed to know where they are on the curve. The cap for time off increases for length of employment has gone down and time off can't be rolled over more than one year or cashed in. Projects don't get much more challenging with promotions and many vendors have poor communication skills which can impeed project progress.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many repetitive presuptions in design reviews resulting in an inefficient use of time. Supervisor advise is often contradiced my manager comments in design reviews indicating poor communication between upper and lower management. If you're not sure, don't assume, just request an analysis and wait for the results. If you aren't familiar with the type of analysis, learn more about it or trust it, but don't argue with it.

    Assembly line work that went all the way up to 40 plus trucks a day with only a 10 minute break and a 20 minute lunch.

    Not really any, a little uptight on making sure your paperwork is legible. , but this is understandable
