    Interesting Work. Overly Bureaucratic.

    IT Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsThe works interesting. Good pay & benefits. Some great coworkers. Potentially rewarding / fulfilling work.

    ConsOverly bureaucratic. Stressful. Too much work to do. Not enough time and people to do it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are as many managers as worker bees and much of managers time is spent on meaningless managerial tasks. Spend more time and money on self motivated well placed workers. Also, the company is headquarters heavy and plant light on staffing. I feel like the plants are where the company stands to make the most money and thus having enough good people at the plants to find all those opportunities to make money is where it's at.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    somewhat fair if you do your research...pending what location you work, women beware

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Proschill work environment depending on your manager and the location in which you work

    great benefits

    company cc - so no waiting on a corporate reimbursement

    relocation package

    willing to invest in new technology to aid with your work

    hard to get fired

    Consnew CEO getting rid of lots of employee perks

    women make severely less unless you have high up connections

    HR and manager will work together to avoid lawsuit after the fact (my title was changed once to save their behinds on salary differences between sexes) Of course they didn't admit to this but I'm far from stupid.

    creeping at a snails pace to diversify...good old boys club

    - Travel Opportunities

    Cons- Extremely Stressful atmosphere

    Top to bottom organization with easy jobs with the exception of working in a dangerous environment.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Gary, IN

    ProsTop notch benefits, good pay, good bosses if you are in the right department and division.

    Consvarying hours, repetitiveness of work, no upward mobility that I have seen, no chance of overtime where I work

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed more recognition of hard working employees, make people from their own line do that own lines work, fairness of giving overtime to employees is a huge thing considering favoritism is blatantly obvious
