    Pros

    The plant is a very clean environment and the work is not very difficult. The working conditions are good and employee benefits are good.

    Cons

    The downturn in business due to illegal music, movie, and game downloads had severely hurt this business and has caused numerous layoffs. There is not much future with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Look for other opportunities to utilize the workforce and assets (equipment and building) to continue a profitable business.

    Pros

    good medical benefits, there is nothing else good to say

    Cons

    they treat there people horrible and tell you, you will work a certain schedule then every week they tell you they don't know if there is work the last day of your schedule and do not let you know till the night before therefore never can plan anything, and never can a steady paycheck due to constant cut of hours. Also horrible shift differential 35 cents McDonalds gives more. One last thing expect no pay raises

    Advice to Management

    learn how to plan and schedule and actually work with your employees

    Pros

    This is a great 1st time office job. It gives you enough "experience" to add to your resume to advance to something better.

    Cons

    Management is buddy buddy, some have been there since the department opened up. You only really get help if you are liked by management. If you are new your lunch is as early as 2 hours into your shift. Sick time does not exist. They focus more on how you can be punished for messing up or being late than on when good things are done.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe instead of upper management talking to each other for literally HOURS a day while you are supposed to be training temps, you could actually teach them something. Also, if you actually talked to each other about WORK that whole time I don't think there would be so many unhappy employees. You shouldn't be so shocked when everyone has questions once they are out on the floor based off of the lack of training they received.

    Pros

    They have a Global recognition program which can't get any better than that

    Cons

    Most of the time there is not much to do, requests can come in at any time and some days unexpectedly after lunch time the requests start to pilling up.

    Advice to Management

    I do recommend a training program for the new hires, I remember the first few weeks when I started working there wasn't much to do and all the new hires had to shadow existing employees to get an idea of what they where doing which did not help us much.

    Pros

    Flexable work schedual, good benefits

    Cons

    Management is a few high school graduates that are all friends, pay is very low, extreamly high turn over, people are often fired for no apparent reason (this is a work-at-will state). The company says there is no funds for activities, however the Europe companies have HUGE parties almost weekly.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from outside the company or hire an outside company when doing promotions. Stop promoting your highschool graduate friends that will lead this company into the ground
