    I have been working at General Plastics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Customers increasingly provide feedback that GP is one of their highest performing suppliers. This feedback is a reflection on the entire GP team. Nearly 100.00% product quality is the norm in an industry where 98-99.7% has been acceptable in the past. Consequently, GP's quality is becoming a key differentiator..

    Cons

    Manufacturing takes a kind of tenacity that some people find hard to muster. Opportunities are there for those who are persistent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on quality of the product. Quality creates reputation and good will needed to sustain future growth for generations.

    Pros

    Gain great product knowledge & experience with Polyurethanes and their applications in various markets. Used to be a great place to work with internal advancement, pride in workmanship and a focus on taking care of the customer, whatever it took.

    Cons

    With recent transitions with inexperienced leadership has altered company focus and quality. Large turnover in key positions has caused a major deficit in tribal knowledge causing quality concerns and delayed customer shipments. No long term goals for company due to short term leadership. Extreme punitive HR focus on employees. Does not foster an open minded atmosphere but rather worried about keep a job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on Positives, learn from negatives as did the leadership from decades previous. Support your best asset your people. Keep customer focus & delivery. Quality made that company special.
