    I worked at RathGibson (More than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of the co-workers are good people to work with Decent pay compared to similar jobs in the area

    Cons

    Management does not know how to run the company Constantly running out of supplies that you need Will lay off a bunch of people and then bring in temps for cheaper the following week.

    Advice to Management

    You have lost countless good employees over the last couple of years due to how you have ran the company and have retained poor employees that steal and damage products and have low production numbers.

    Pros

    income, shelter, place to go, good workers who .....

    Cons

    too many chiefs, no communication between managers or supervisors, safety precautions are ignored, no preventive maintance done on anything.

    Talk amongst each other about goals and stop talking just to hear yourselves.

    Pros

    Health Benefits, decent pay compared to similiar companies

    Cons

    Extreme workload with very little to no training, poor middle management, company focuses on quantity over quality

    Advice to Management

    Replace middle management with the most valuable floor employees (of which there are very few)

    I worked at RathGibson full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation, benefits and leadership has a decent growth plan. Performers get advancement.

    Cons

    High turnover rate among newly-hired employees reporting to the VP/GM level due to unclear performance expectations and excessive workload.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is far too flat -- too many direct reporting relationships to the VP/GM causes numerous personnel problems, including unclear expectations. New hires reporting to the VP/GM have had about a 50/50 retention rate in recent years, and the only performance discussion that will be had is when being walked out the door, blindsided.
