    20 plus years of management and always at the top of my class.

    ProsSkills must be obtainable and you have to create an environment that employees like to come to work. Solid training,positive feedback create positive skills in the work place.

    ConsBeing a perfectionist sometimes creates employee jealousy and it can be a negative.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have to create a motivational team with a clear understanding of goals. You will obtain bottom line profits based on a well organized lead team.

    Work is work

    Penetrant Inspector Level II (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    ProsNot a minimum wage job and comes with comes with health, dental and 401k after few months of employment. People are pretty chill and supervisors are friendly,

    ConsNot a minimum wage job, but pretty low for beginners compared to other companies in he industry and rarely any raise.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to know your employees and give them what they really want. A lot of people working at your company is having to decide weather to spent on gas or food every month. A raise a year to keep up with the economy will be really helpful.

    Too many chiefs, not enough indians

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Waterville, ME

    ProsIt is a non-profit organization that runs really good programs for handicapped individuals. I enjoyed working with my clients. I feel like I made a difference in their lives.

    Cons"Policies" change from day to day, depending on which supervisor is in charge that day. Everyone has a different way of running things, and the chain of command is not followed. Low-level employees are not valued at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should treat your employees better. We have great ideas, and if we're allowed to show our initiative and creativity, we could improve services 100 fold.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
