    Pros

    They pay for your health insurance 100% which is a positive. But you have to tell them your personal medical and prescription information in order to get it.

    Cons

    No one talks about what is going on with the company with each other. There is too much secrecy. The place is filled with solder fumes and the employees seem to enjoy it. They have daily 'huddles' which resembles communist Chinese work conditions. Everyone tells each other what they are doing that day but management already knows it and the employees do not benefit from this since all their jobs do not coincide. Advice: stay away from this place!

    Advice to Management

    You use people and don't offer any support if they are trying to succeed. Management should step down and hire real professionals to do the job correctly.

    Pros

    you can learn about how the concrete industry measures the strength of their product. most of the people that worked there were good to work with.

    Cons

    The entire time I was there the company had no sales and was not getting anything for the future of the company.. The other employees felt it was in their best interests not to share information with other people so it was impossible to learn what was expected from you and how to get it done. The employees that were there the longest didn't want anyone to know anything about the products that were made there.

    Advice to Management

    they should let the employees know how the company is doing
