    Pros

    It can be a place to work for life. Many people have 15+ years of experience and have no plans of leaving.

    Cons

    People are entrenched and process haven't changed. There is no incentive as everyone is rewarded the same regardless of effort, which hinders motivatation. There are people that refuse to share knowledge because it gives them power and management is too afraid of uncertainty to do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    If someone who is entrenched and is not moving the company forward threatens to quit or dangles another job offer, solely to get promoted, do not offer them a promotion and raise. The good people who are trying to make the company a better place will leave, and the company itself will stagnate.

    Pros

    Financially solid. Good temporary or beginning job, as long as you do not present yourself as being sharp and strategic.

    Cons

    Leadership will turn their heads if something is being done ethical.

    Advice to Management

    Review your process and thinking when something is brought to your attention.

    Pros

    Learned about parts that help reduce noise and heat inside cars

    Cons

    Coworker take little mistakes you made, turned it into a big deal. People who would not preform their jobs correctly. Made to feel like a bad person for turning in wrong doing, but I got fired for saying a cuss word. One lady on the production floor cussing the team leader all the time and nothing get done.

    Advice to Management

    Look close at some of your management team, they tend to play favorites when it comes to corrective action. You have a tech that thinks they can listen to ballgames and such during working hours.

    Pros

    The people where great, a work day consisted of three different shifts, paid holidays, benefits and quearterly bonuses.

    Cons

    Too much negative criticism given to dependable hard workers and not enough to slackers who didn't care about their performance or quality of work.

    Advice to Management

    Give more positive reinforcement to your hard, dedicated workers who have good work ethics and enforce the rules on the ones who don't care about the job.
