    Some decisions need higher approval than Plant Manager, gives impression the site not able to handle own future.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lake City, SC

    ProsForgiving of occasional missteps
    Simple Process to understand

    ConsLow level of communication between upper and lower management.
    Little communication between departments because of an enviroment of assigning blame rather than finding solutions
    Lack of planning, changing plans less than a week in advance keeps us flexible but sabotages employees ability to plan ahead (remember 1 hour of prior planning saves 4 hours of future work)
    Changing priorities makes it difficult to accomplish long term goals
    Training is treated as additional busywork and not a valuable tool for many employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementFoster an environment of collaboration to find permanent solutions and not temporary excuses
    Look for improvements that will benefit the corporation in the long term, don't wait for a problem to point out a potential improvement
    Improvements that reduce the workload of the operators will increase moral and allow the plant to run with fewer employees (running with fewer people without reducing the workload WILL lead to future problems) and should be explored.

    Interesting company to work for. Just when you think you seen it all... High middle management turnover rates.

    Supervisor Level (Current Employee) Lake City, SC

    ProsLoyalty to company, company will show loyalty to you motto seems to exist.
    Process and work is extremely easy to learn and understand.
    If you were to fail at your job, you will rarely if ever be fired for it.
    Being fired from this company literally takes effort.
    Never had a layoff before, since the company was built and started.
    If you cannot handle the pressure of your position. You will just be moved to a less stressful position and become less micromanaged, but with the same salary as before, when a position becomes available.
    A safety department that is not corrupt and attempt to hide worker related injuries. They are known to do whatever it takes to get you the medical care you need if you are injured.

    ConsTerrible management. Micromanaged to the point of mishap.
    Communication between departments are lacking.
    Upper-management constantly strike fear into employees as a way to motivate them. Upper-management will never hesitate to belittle you in public with yelling, or embarrass you in front of your colleagues or people that work underneath you.
    A culture of consistent blaming other departments instead of attempting to work together to fix a problem for the better of the company.
    Incompetent workers and workers that refuse to do what they are told, and azzholes that complain and yell all day instead of working to get the job done are never fired. Instead these people are feared, because people want to avoid conflict with them. Instead hardworking people wanting to do good for the company will get reprimanded constantly micromanaged and never praised. (What does this tell you about the employee morale in this company?)
    If you want a company that will never thank you or appreciate your hard work and dedication to the company than this company is for you. The culture here is once you signed and came on board it is your duty and obligation to give your life for the company. A "good job" or "atta boy" will become a silent, you were supposed to do that anyways, why do I need to say anything...
    Salary is traditionally known to be lower than the national average, and management likes it and wants to keep it that way.
    Money is all that matters to them. And they are very cheap about it. They are only as loyal to you as you are to their money. I know typically all manufacturing industry is like this, but this company seems to be a bit more over zealous on this money thing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCreate an environment of collaboration instead of constant excuse making and blaming culture. This will lead to more permanent results that will create more wealth for the company. With the current band aid fix culture this company promotes, the money saved from it is merely short term. Thus the company will never receive long term benefits.
    I understand the company has never had layoffs before, and do not want to have a layoff to keep with tradition. I would tell management that firing incompetent workers or workers that have no desire to work or get the job done, and all they do is b#tch and complain daily about how sucky their job is is NOT called a LAYOFF. It's called a firing your sh#t workers, and replacing them with good competent get the job done workers. This will increase productivity, which will increase bottom line profit for the company. And will also increase worker morale, which means less stress for you. Oh wait, I guess that would mean less yelling at your employees and belittling them in the face of many peers. And being less of a tyrant in general. And we wouldn't want to take away that fun would we?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Treats employees as disposible. Some in company proud they have an average lifespan of a supervisor of less then a YEAR

    Process Supervisor (Former Employee) Lake City, SC

    ProsNany YA has a pension plan and they have a very well estup 401K. They provide a cafeteria for supervisors and above.

    ConsThe Management absolutley does not care about anyone from this country. All production management above entry level production supervisor level is Taiwanese.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to invest in employee moral and the overall treatment of employees... Make an investment in your employees and actually invest money in working equipment

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
