    Pros

    Great company with decent pay, tuition reimbursement, and benefits

    Cons

    Poor management, TERRIBLE SUPERVISOR Management should seriously reconsider the middle manager. Supervision is not meant to be micromanaging, and promotion from within should be a realistic opportunity for experienced workers. Less politics, more value on employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what individuals have to say. Don't allow a culture to exist that holds employees back from utilizing the skills they have.

    Pros

    Good company to have on resume.

    Cons

    The company is too cheap to hire more people, so the current employees are sometimes doing two peoples job for one low salary.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people so the current employees are not so stressed out. Take a hint when the turn over rate is high,

    Pros

    Good group of people you work with. Don't have to take the job home with you.

    Cons

    Terrible pay. Plant workers without college education make considerably more money than engineers. Cost of health care benefits is always going up with less coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees! We've lost any family oriented company values and employee moral that we once had.
