    Pros

    Flexible part time hours during shift, good pay

    Cons

    Not many chances to move up, because people don't leave the company often in the salary positions, or the day shift positions. Second and third shift jobs rotate everyday, First shift stays in their same position all the time, so they no their job more proficiently.

    Advice to Management

    Rotate First shift employees the same as second and third and they will experience some of the issues they go through.

    Pros

    Many friendly and intelligent employees. Always willing to teach and pass on information.

    Cons

    you get a promotion with more responsibility but never an increase in pay. This seems to be one of the major flaws within the company.

    Advice to Management

    treat your employees better and show your appreciation by giving some raises. I guarantee morale will get better.

    Pros

    The people. I can't stress that enough. The gals in the office are great. The guys on the floor I have known for a long time. I will miss all the hard working and considerate individuals that have given me laughs and smiles to keep the nonsense out of each and every day of my last years. It was an honor and a pleasure.

    Cons

    Lets just say I have seen much of what this company has destroyed within the companies they have acquired over a large span and the only word that comes to mind is: TERRIBLE.

    Waaaayyyy understaffed (in all departments). No work-life balance whatsoever. Morale is low. Everywhere the stress level is so high everyone gets annoyed with each other and their excuse is "well...every company is that way" LOL.

    Forget about a decent raise for all the hard work you put into each year. Doesn't happen.

    Jobs are available, but that's because people are constantly quitting or leaving to something better because they cannot stand the poor management and complicated systems this company lives on.

    Cut half of management and replace it with employees who do the actual work and this company could turn itself around.

    In the meantime, a huge chunk of their business growth is based on acquiring successful businesses at the right time to keep the investors happy.

    Most ppl under this company that I know just look at it as a paycheck, not much else. And guys like me...can't wait for retirement around the corner.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure that it matters as I doubt any manager will look at this, but if you're serious...for petes sake, hire more ppl (not managers!) and treat them well. Yes, its really as simple as that.

    Pros

    Many great, capable and friendly colleagues.

    Cons

    Unclear career development options and process.

    Advice to Management

    Have 360 reviews on all leaders, managers and directors. Give yourself full transparency and evaluation of your leadership team from above and below. A ship can go no further than its captain.
