    Pros

    I worked with a very professional group of people who were willing to help and at the same time open to accept new ideas.

    Cons

    Nothing to worry about. Senior management, keep your mind open to new technology to maintain an edge over the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job and maintaining the work force motivated.

    Pros

    For a production facility the environment is clean and the climate control is pretry good too. It can get a little warm at times but not to bad for a production facility. Benefits and pay are decent.

    Cons

    I don't believe it's excessive but there is one or two managers tasked with overseeing production and people, who have NO CLUE how to do the job. That would be ok if they showed the ability to learn the job and had a little humility about themselves. When everything you hear out of them is how great they are and everything they've done (when in actuality it is those below them getting it done) it becomes silly. It is extremely hard to want to put in extra efforts (which at this point are expected) when you have a hard time respecting the people you report to and they want to be glory hounds. If they could check their egos at the door and talk to people respectfully it would be a huge improvement. They just seem to only want to hear their own words.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the momentum that has been building. Also keep tabs on managers like above. It would be a shame to see things fall apart because people give up due to this style managers and supervisors. Although their has been more respect shown to production workers over the last 5 years or so their are still a few who tend to look or talk down on us.

    Pros

    Allows you to get involved in a wide range of technologies. There are many opportunities to get involved with products you enjoy working on.

    Cons

    When upper management makes a mistake, rather than admit the mistake, they blame it on the middle managers.

    Advice to Management

    If you make a change at the middle management level and the problem does not go away, maybe the problem is with upper management. At least give that concept considered.
