    Pros

    Geographically located HQ in nice Detroit suburbs. Plants are scattered around USA in mostly remote locations.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional and combative culture does not work well for careers. High turnover of sales team always leads to new people coming on board and always in perpetual training mode.

    Pros

    The founder is a joy to work with - he is supportive, wise, and excited about the business. Nearly free healthcare. Pretty location.

    Cons

    Awful morale, slow as molasses, way behind the curve - they make money by accident! A stepping stone for a title, not somewhere you want to stay very long.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times, listen to your teams instead of yelling at them, listen to your father.

    Pros

    Good benefits package. A job to use as a stepping stone. Make good friends on the job.

    Cons

    Extreme disregard for safety and regulations, as evidenced by multiple infractions throughout the facility. Do not care about their associates health and well being. The pay scale is not great. They expect more work out of fewer people. Little room for advancement. Extreme degradation of communication leads to poor morale.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your associates health, safety and well being. Communicate fairly and honestly with all employees. IF you want more work with fewer people pay them more. improve work conditions. Offer more incentives. Life happens, offer sick days to be earned after 90 days instead of waiting for one year anniversary. Did I say COMMUNICATE. Give accolades where they are due.

    Pros

    Get to watch the owner drive around in his Mercedes-Benz, they have a lunch room. They have a place to park your car.

    Cons

    Headquarters is creepy to work at - Beyond having zero the morale “the building” itself is 4 times too big for the staff level, so you have all this unused space that adds to this already strange environment. Family owned and feels that way, unable to do anything other than what the family " DEMANDS" without any of their support.

    Advice to Management

    I wish you the best;
