    Pros

    Fellow employees, relatively competitive pay scale, as well as a good work environment.

    Cons

    You are expected to know everything as soon as you hit the door. I was told that I wasn't "catching on" as quick as they thought I should have. I've been unemployed for three years, maybe they should have taken that into consideration when I started. They only gave me three days to "train".

    Advice to Management

    Had I not been "bird dogged" from the start, may things would have been different. Did they really think three days training was long enough? All I can say is that it's their loss. It's a fact that older employees are the most reliable. .

    Pros

    I have absolutely nothing positive to say about this particular plant and location other than the operators you will work with on most shifts are all good hearted people

    Cons

    Management does not value their operators not one single bit. Pay is horrible and raises are scarce and not given when you move up to a different level of machining that is supposed to come with a raise. There is a whole lot of discrimination against women at this plant as well. Men will get their raises for m moving up, women will not. Benefits have been taken away and cut. You work 12 hour shifts. Your opinion does not matter and you are not to question a single solitary thing that someone in a supervisor/management position tells you. If you do decide to ask questions then you have a bad attitude

    Advice to Management

    Management at our plant is absolutely horrible. My advice for management is to listen to your operators and address their complaints and concerns in a professional manner. Dont ignore them. Stop telling your employees" If you dont like it then you can find another job, I have a stack of applications on my desk 4 inches tall" Because if that was the truth then this plant wouldnt be so understaffed and overworked. YOUR OPERATORS ARE YOUR MONEY MAKERS!!!!

    Pros

    It's a decent job. Some of the people were friendly.

    Cons

    The engineering services division of the company struggles to get new contracts. The project management does not seem to care about staying on schedule and generally has an adversarial view towards the contracting companies management. The managers repeatedly denigrate their management counterparts behind their backs. One manager even went so far as to draw cartoons that ridiculed the customer. It was very unprofessional and it embarrassing to work for the guy. There is no training, career path, or potential for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your leadership at the first level of management. They will cost you business opportunities in the future.
