    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work here are the people and the environment. I was able to work on multiple projects at once that could be a day to day basis or the whole term.They are always willing to teach and it feels like a small family business. No one is trying to oust you out of your job and management is always willing to give you more responsibility if you ask for it. Plus management is always involved and not on the sidelines like some other major corporations.

    Cons

    Some groups have bad cultures and almost always busy, where things needed to get done yesterday. It feels like some of the meetings don't need to happen as they take up to 50% of some peoples' days.

    Advice to Management

    Collaborate on getting more people together for meetings so multiple ones don't need to happen on different days to make sure everything is being caught up on.

  2. Good place to work

    Pros

    Salary an benefits are above average. Paid time off between Christmas and New Year's Day. Medical benefits are very good.

    Cons

    Wasn't able to work from home. Many companies now will allow employees to work from home one day a week or once every other week. It's a very helpful option for those employees who have a long commute.

    I learned a lot about working the assembly line in a plant. Learned about how a union works.
