    Former Employee - Operations Manager in Hebron, OH

    I worked at Ten Cate full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cohesive team of coworkers, most of whom knew their jobs well.

    Cons

    Salary increases are small and far between, below local standards. This makes it hard to retain the required talent.
    Permanent hiring of outstanding temporary workers takes too long. They are losing too much talent that way.

    Working environment adds stress and fatigue, not being air conditioned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve downward communication through the ranks. It had been non-existent.
    Once reviews of supervisors and managers are written, make sure they are delivered! I received only one performance review in 6 annual cycles!
