    Pay way above average for my area. Great benefits.

    Employees don't feel appreciated. Leadership roles are degree based instead of experience. based.

    Advice to Management

    You have a large talent pool already working for you. Promote from within and train leaders your way as much as possible.

    Pros

    Good people – good benefits – great opportunities for people to advance for those who want to Pay is good

    Cons

    Tell us to be creative – but you have to do it in a very specific way There is very little work life balance – tell you take time off – but expect you to show up to meetings on your days off No one speaks up anymore for fear of not being a Team player

    Advice to Management

    Quit changing the benefit programs. Knock off the Real Recognition. NCE is a waste of time – please just let us just do our job

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, overtime hours, and the people are able and willing to help you learn, and teach you what you need to know to plan and progress in your personal pay progression.

    Cons

    It's a smaller plant so, there are things that corporate expects us to act and be as productive as a larger facility. If a larger facility makes a mistake, it has less impact on their overall numbers where as if we do the percentages, and numbers, that we go off of are a little too tight, to be able to 'make up' the difference.

    Advice to Management

    Know and understand that we are smaller, we don't have 2 crews, and the mistakes that people make are GOING to be more impactful to the production techs, and our work/life balance, than it would a larger plant.

    Pros

    the best part was the free ice cream and pizza. Also the freedom of being out in the trade everyday and not stuck behind a desk at an office job

    Cons

    the hours were way too long at times. It could get very stressful and you have to deal with a lot of different personalities
