    Pros

    Co workers, atmosphere, bonuses, and benifits

    First company that I have worked for, that I don't mind going in, show up happy and leave happy 99 percent of the time.

    Cons

    Communication, no real inventory method

    My cons are more like challenges presented, that would take more than a week to rectify

    Advice to Management

    As a super fast growing company, try to keep your composure

    Pros

    Growing company with innovative products. Provides good benefits and generous compensation. Brand new location with great office and manufacturing environment

    Cons

    Too much office politics. Not a clear customer support focus. Aging sales force with little transition strategy. Product development is following competition rather than being innovative

    Pros

    This company is growing huge. The building is very new and has great ac and heat for the manufacturing floor which is very surprising and greatly appreciated. The 401k, health, dental, vision benefits are decent. In my opinion the best thing here is the people I work with. Coworkers are positive, smart, helpful, and caring. We are all here to better ourselves and finding mutual ground in that is easy.
    Another great benefit is the profit sharing most people are pretty happy with how great that is increasing!

    Cons

    In any working environment there's problems and here communication can be problematic.
    Communication with shift changes is either little or non existent occasionally.
    G and W has been implementing changes to improve upon this but more needs to be done

    Parking can also be very difficult on shift changes

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand and respond to problems in a more effective and more respectful manor.

    Free food. There are a handful of nice people. Parking is great.

    Cons

    No communication they act like they are very nice but they aren't and don't go to human resources because they won't be helpful when they see you coming they look away.
