    Pros

    Excellent opportunities for advancement, job security and competitive wages and benefits.

    Cons

    Let the workers get involved and be involved in the decision making process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the workers who perform this job, and have for many years be involved in the decision making process, and recommend changes.

    Pros

    The only thing good about the company is the fact they still exsist!

    Cons

    Since the purchase ny Nestle', the factory in Fremont has gone down hill rapidly. Managers have individual motives and will "screw over" their fellow managers or subordinates. There is no integrity within upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to stop lying to Nestle' Vevey on how well you are doing in TPM. We have not improved our efficiciency or reliablity of production. You all feel the need to prove to Vevey that you are better than what they expect of you! Be honest with yourselves, live in reality and deal with what you have. THAT WILL lead you down the road of success!!
