    Old generation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople were generally pleasant and benefits to full-time employees were adequate.

    ConsThis company wastes a lot of dollars and runs its data in perpetual circles. A lot of this nonsense seems to be for job preservation, or "this is how we've always done it." An old generation of factory engineers with little understanding of current data technologies. Little growth and much hiring through temporary services to keep current full-time staff in place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementData overhaul. Look at your date systems and date library and completely overhaul practice of naming parts and supplies and overall data workflow. Half of the current staff could be trimmed making way for new blood with modern understanding of database.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
