    Pros

    Good starting pay, for not having any experience or degree. Excellent benifits. Union shop, so seniority rules.

    Cons

    Off shift gets the short end of the stick. No catering services offered in the evening and overnights. The usual union b.s, where senior employees don't do their jobs and find creative ways of getting out of work. Management is somewhat of a joke at times, they worry about other shifts performances, and they can't see the fact that their shift is the worse.

    Advice to Management

    Bring down the hammer and enforce the rules equally to all employees. (Regardless of shift). Break the hourly, salary barrier that the company has created. We're all equal here. Maybe do a company luncheon and find ways to mingle with the people that are the reason they have their job.

    Pros

    A lot of freedom to do what you want and manage projects without micro-managers looking over your shoulders all day long. Lots of different technologies and manufacturing methods to learn about.

    Cons

    Products that are decades old are build with processes and technologies that are decades old in a facility that is decades old. While there is a breadth of stuff to learn, dont expect much of today's advanced technology -- even in the newer buildings on their "renovated" campus. The vision of the organization is a moving target and priorities change frequently. Breakdown are an hourly occurrence and could be a single machine or an entire plant outage.

    Advice to Management

    Management has likely changed since my departure. Lots could be gained from planning ahead more and communicating longer term visions instead of breaking news with an element of surprise. Planning leads to the best results. Be nice to your employees, dig to recognize their efforts on projects&things that may not have been part of their goals and objectives.
