    Pros

    Good learning environment. A wide variety of plant machinery that regularly needs environment. Challenges one to be innovative in their approaches.

    Cons

    Management has greatly neglected their entry level staff with regular instances of late or no pay at the end of the month. Little or no supervision in the factory floor resulting in neglect of machinery and poor operation. No rapport between management and lower level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Kindly give supervision responsibilities to the experienced workers so that operations may run smoothly. Create a forum for workers to air out their grievances, Total Preventive Maintenance Implementation.
