    Pros

    Atmosphere of an industrial company: serious, but not aggressive. No dress code.

    Cons

    HR not focussed in helping employees progress: no school sponsorships, no help in changing jobs within company.

    Advice to Management

    To give more feedback to employees.


  2. Good wages but little room for promotion

    Pros

    - competitive wage structure - build lasting friendships with colleagues - on your feet and move around all day - get to build things - unionized environment makes it very difficult to get fired

    Cons

    - unionized environment makes it difficult to get promoted - promotions based on tenure instead of merit - typically overtime is required in the summer weekends

    Advice to Management

    - be more transparent and honest with employees on the direction and challenges that the company is facing - provide more training and development opportunities
