    Pros

    Engineering department was dynamic with a "very" capable Manager.

    Cons

    No place for anybody not ready to give 150% continually. It is a Non-Stop environment with a well exercized "revolving door".

    Advice to Management

    Management, H. R. to be precise, please examine reasoning for large turnover. Maybe less p. c., and more truth about the work environments and etc.. When available demographic can't be satisfied, you will not retain them.

    Pros

    Best company in the world.we are getting good pay,profit sharing and many more benefits.I feel like its my own business me and my familys future is safe. Feeling proud .

    Cons

    Favoritism is the big problem in today's date.they aren't hiring the right people.Its really hard to get in for common person.4 to5 people of each family working in company.that's not good for company.it divide people in to the groups that means no teamwork.no one care for company,everyone busy to make space for their siblings

    Advice to Management

    Management can control it.every company have their own policies.we accept that but it should apply to all employees sameway.so if management control the favoritism they will be able to reduce50 percent of the company's problems.they shouldn't hire more than 2 people in one family.supervisor's and teamleaders wife's shouldn't allow to work in same company. On the floor politics is more than business. For good business we have to stop this dirty politics.we have to make a team to bring our company back to line.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to move up, CEO is great, each plant runs on their own.

    Cons

    If you are in a plant with poor upper management you will have issues. The actual company as a whole entity is great but certain locations aren't.

    Advice to Management

    Stay out of personal lives. Understand your HR laws.

    Pros

    Compensation if you can put up with the abuse.

    Cons

    VP and Director are two faced and abusive. One of the worst places I have ever work and would not recommend to my worst enemy.

    Advice to Management

    Find a job digging ditches, you lisping fool, as you have no leadership ability.

    Pros

    Would take your knowledge into consideration.

    The company was closing the plant and were not friendly. I have friends that did relocate to other plants and have had great experiences.

    Pros

    They do a lot for their employees that many companies can't afford to do anymore: Turkey/Ham during the holidays, bowling parties, etc.

    Cons

    A true manufacturing environment. Can be quite stressful at times. Leadership can be intimidating first, but great once you get to know them and prove yourself.

    Pros

    Decent money, befits and paid holidays. Clothing allowance and $100 safety footwear per year. Stable hours and overtime if you want it.

    Cons

    As the company has grown, you feel like a smaller fish in a bigger pond. Morale over the years has dropped. Overtime is mandated quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Problems with safety, quality and accountability continue to be swept under the rug. All 3 shifts run on a different set of rules and standards.

    Pros

    Company is filled with some of the best and brightest I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    Senior management hinders any change and progress being made for Electronics, They are currently losing people as fast as they can hire them.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your office occasionally and get a real idea of what is going on.
