    Pros

    Easy job, Easy bonus, Great Time Off, Great benefits, Some Opportunities for advancement.

    It is a high school, Management is more worried about being popular than doing what is best, If you are a good worker you will be doing more than what you are paid for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to what is happening on the floor, not who is kissing up.

    Pros

    Good benefits such as Gym, cafeteria a small starbucks and decent salary. The company offers good opportunities only if you have a good manager, good financial systems, good leadership training and six sigma training.

    Cons

    Low morale, not work life balance, poor management style, micromanagement style, lack of professionalism, not potential to growth they rather hire somebody from outside the company instead of promoting for within. Poor comunication. You get a sense that you can lose your job any time. The hotline system does not work potential retaliation if you complain about your manager, double standard since the rules does not apply to all the employees. Very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every manager should participate in the leadership programs provided by the company and apply them.

    Pros

    Supervisors and coworkers are very nice and the Boca locations are both very nice and updated.

    Cons

    they have a lot of contractors that have been there for years without permanent employment. Their processes for a big company are very unorganized. The morale and company culture is going downhill as they are experiencing a lot of transformation and letting go of a lot of talented people who have dedicated years to their organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The amount of intellectual property that you lose is invaluable. You can't always put dollars and cents on everything. Know how the machine functions before you start chopping off pieces.
