    Pros

    Steady work and good interpersonal relationships with employees

    Cons

    Nothing negative really to report, Some company politics as is with any corporate job

    Advice to Management

    If possibel, Raise pay to a more competitive wage that is equal to that of other similar positions in the industry. Start with 90 trial period with lower pay to see how the employee will fair and after a relationship is built with the employee give the person a substantial raise

    Pros

    Relative operational autonomy at the plant level, individual accountability for performance

    Cons

    Seasonal, little in the way of real support from regional and corporate management resources

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on support of individual operational units. Don't try to force the same KPI's on plants of vastly different infrastructure and capacity and age.

    Pros

    Great people to work with although there can be some drama. Variety of duties to perform makes every day different.

    Cons

    Promotions can be hard to come by, even though it is a national corporation. Upper management personnel usually stays a long time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to have better training for employees with promotion potential. Instead, management encourages growth and responsibilities, then decides to hire from outside the company than promote within.
