    Pros

    Best place to work, hands down. Lots of exposure to some of the biggest brands and upper management. I've been very fortunate to be a part of great teams where it truly felt like I was part of a family. A year after leaving the company, I'm still great friends with people I worked with and reported to.

    Cons

    Lots of structure which is great for some people but not everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do!

    Pros

    Any post that says it's a great place to work is either lying or someone who doesn't care about work life balance.

    Cons

    Lots of changes with negative impacts. Company keeps looking for ways to trim regardless of how it impacts the ppl running it. The connection with the ppl don't matter anymore, it's just all about the business.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose touch with the ppl that help you run the business!

    Pros

    Working from home, open office environment

    Cons

    Old ways of working holding this company back. Culture needs to improve trust. Development of employees optional and not a priority. Processes run the,people not the,other way around.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from other great companies like Google on how to motivate and keep great talent. Great products are one thing..great people are another. Get rid of the forced ranking system. Find ways to let people shine. Require management to know their people.

    Pros

    Develop a great sense of ownership, transferring knowledge between operator and mechanics. Maintaining a clean and safe environment to work. Extensively trained in safe manufacturing practices.

    Cons

    Working in teams is not always good, therefore everyone is not able to be team leaders. Not being able to get credit for creative thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are the experts, they are the ones performing the operations. Their ideas and opinions should be valued.
