    Pros

    Salary is not bad and the benefits are ok

    Cons

    Lack of Management , poor motivation , lots of insults from the Frenchies to the employees .
    Actively forcing the people to lie and bypass the controls to ship product even out of spec
    Forcing people to move the control limits to have "good" product coming out of the dock
    People there in management is forced to live almost there a bad employee if you are there just 10 hours a day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sues related to abuse and bullying in the short term future
    Lots of products failing in short term future , customers must have a triple check in the products coming from them
