    Pros

    Gill has a nice headquarters. Most of the people there are OK. Nothing about management is remarkable. These are the GOOD qualities.

    Cons

    No loyalty. Upper management feels that they have to micromanage everything. It is difficult to think for yourself because upper management HAS to be in control. Just play along and be a mindless robot and everything will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Change your attitude and style. You have lost some very talented people not because of what they have done but because of you. You are narrow minded and petty.

  3. I learned a lot and a meaningful internship.

    Pros

    Production was a 2 crew operation that worked 4 ten hour days per week. Virtually no weekends. Very fast paced environment, no redunancy or monotany with the job.

    Cons

    They "clean house" every year and get rid of anyone that they don't like. And they make it very clear that they do this each year so they keep people in fear mode working weekends, late nights etc.

    I took a $10,000 pay cut to work for this company.

    Benefits were the worst in all 4 companies I've worked at.

    Advice to Management

    Look for people with integrity to lead lower levels of the organization.

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits: up to 192hrs

    Cons

    Management closed the doors on Clayton Eng. Tools. They kept all vacation, and did not help place anyone. There were approx. 38 employees. The contacts that Gill had could have been used to place everyone. The average length of time at Clayton was 14 years. The company treated them like they were strangers. Very disappointed!!

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees..they are the company not you
