    - Co-workers were very kind, intelligent, outgoing

    Cons

    - Sometimes a little dull, you must be into B2B industrial goods
    - Huge company, you get a 'cog in the machine' vibe sometimes

    Pros

    Everyone working is very competent and knows what they're doing. The bonus system is a good way to encourage performance and promotions are available for merit.

    Cons

    Company is a bit too meeting-happy. Meetings are all good and well, but meetings often take up a whole day leaving less time to actually implement decisions made in those meetings. Many people don't need to be at all those meetings either.

    Pros

    The 14 day a month work schedule affords workers the opportuinity to lead a more balanced life. I have been presented with the opportunity to advance at an accelerated pace. The bonus system is also a great way to motivate employees and keep everyone focused on the companies guiding principles.

    Cons

    12 hour shifts can be grueling especially in the summer months. Not alot of parity in pay. some individuals with fewer responsibilities and job requirements make the same dollar amount as you do.

    Advice to Management

    So far management has been good to work with.

    Pros

    Long-term outlook.
    Management answers to family shareholders who want long-term return, not the quick buck of required from public companies.
    Great co-workers and management.
    Benefits are great!

    Cons

    It is a large company (32,000 employees).
    Communication has to be improved between business segments.
    Limited growth/advancement opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Develop more opportunities to communication between business segments - at the mid-manager and lower level.

    Pros

    Seven workdays out of 14. 12 hour shifts are ok. Work is relatively easy, and fun. The comraderie between co-workers.

    Cons

    alternating shifts of two weeks days and then two weeks nights. the temperature of the spin beam room, and the smell of laquer thinner when you clean the tacs.

    Advice to Management

    treat all employees with the respect you would like yourself to be treated with, and not just as a second class citizen.
