    Pros

    The work is challenging, interesting and keeps you busy and motivated

    Cons

    The management at some of the plants is so old cultured. They've worked there for 30+ years and made their way up and don't have what it takes to lead a company.

    Advice to Management

    When you invest in someone young, take care of them. They are future of the company, not you.

  3. Excellent place to work.

    Pros

    Great people, great atmosphere, and great pay for the work.

    Cons

    Sometimes a little favorable of some people, coming from the office though.

    Advice to Management

    Let's be a little more lenient with points, especially when it is due to weather and out of someone's hands. You're losing a lot of great workers due to this.

    Pros

    They care about their employees, and my experience there was wonderful. The pay we received for the work we did seemed more than fair, and if I had the opportunity, I would return there.

    Cons

    Very strict attendance policies. long hours and possibility of working lots of weekends....so if you like overtime, this would be considered a pro.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest to take a second look at their sick day policies, and medical leave policies. being a non union company and an at-will employer, they need to offer up something to give employees a better sense of job security in the event of personal injury or illness

    Pros

    Good company benefit, Good cafe

    Cons

    Bad boss, bad management skill, did not get paid for overtime even if it was mentioned on my contract, than got blamed that I have not finished my job in time.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your middle management people such as team manager. Some of them are quite useless on managing skill. and if you do not have enough budget for overtime pay, say that in contract.
