    Pros

    Very broad capabilities. Technically competent.

    Cons

    The most toxic management I've ever worked for. All employees and most customers are treated miserably.

    Advice to Management

    CEO and President need to go. Three bankruptcies on their watch.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits used to be good

    Cons

    Management is incompetent, upper management is evil. They have put next to nothing into the plants. Maintenance is horrid. They have a planner that doesn't know what he is talking about. Purchasing is worse. No leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Suicide, for the betterment of mankind

    Pros

    Great benefits. Potential for high earnings although you will trade your entire life for it. They've made extreme safety improvements although I'd still rate it as one of the most dangerous places to work I've ever seen spanning decades.

    Cons

    It takes years to build up enough seniority to make good money for the work you are required to do. The work is tediously physical, you're working in extreme hot and cold, the management on the floor is incredibly inexperienced and self important. We aren't talking normal supervisor behavior we are talking about people who hunt for people to fire or irritate into a frenzy because they enjoy the rush. Stories float around the shop about their conquests like trophies. Virtually everyone in the building is dissatisfied with everyone else and aren't afraid to tell you all about it. Everyone in the building is on edge all day every day and on 7 days a week schedule it's not surprising how low the morale has become.

    Advice to Management

    Stop stressing everyone to the point of breaking and worry about putting out good tube instead. Hire outside supervisors who have experience with what they're doing instead of using the buddy and family system. Learn how to recognize talent instead of expecting people to fall into a lockstep of muscle memory passed on from others who have no education or desire to improve the system.

    Pros

    Better than average wages. Great corporate trips. Big expense accounts.

    Cons

    Bankrupt 2 x in past 10 years. Always on the selling block to the next highest bidder. Unrealistic Executive Management.

    Advice to Management

    Find another company to ruin.

    Pros

    - money was good, but I negotiated a MUCH better salary than my co-workers who had been hired prior to me.

    Cons

    ZERO professionalism. No idea of collaboration between departments - every man for himself. Small town and one of only a couple places to work -hence EVERYONE is related. Horribly outdated systems and technology. Executive officers are a joke - making the same decisions and mistakes over and over expecting a different result. MICROMANAGE.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in outside professionals to grow and empower employees and spend the necessary funds to enable efficiencies.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits (if you're an executive). When you as important as these guys, you need to get paid really well. Not many competitors in this industry.

    Cons

    Top management blames everyone else for company's problems when biggest problem is lack of good leadership. Execs work harder trying to sell us than they do trying to find buyers for our products. High turnover in management ranks. Low morale.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. Do it quickly and without any golden parachutes. It's the only chance we have. P.S. If I could give you guys (Senior Management) a rating of zero stars, I would, but the system makes me give you a 1.

    All in all, very laid back place

    Get over yourself and lead by example
