What is health insurance like at Diversified Conveyors?

Pros

Flexible work schedule Management is laid back Health insurance is pretty good The 45 hr/week minimum was removed 2 weeks of vacation and 1 week of PTO

Cons

Low salary Possibly no bonus (was told the bonus makes up for the low salary) Limited training Some projects don’t have a very good structure

Advice to Management

Train new employees. On a big project, break up the tasks a little better. Consider letting designers do the designing and layouts, and let the engineers focus on engineering related tasks. If you want to keep good employees, pay them a salary that makes them want to stay. The reason people leave is for more money. Don’t be scared to hire engineers with more experience. Then again every experienced engineer that has been hired by you has taken a pay cut. If you want to keep engineers, consider giving everyone at least a 10% pay raise along with increasing the project/design engineer salary cap by 15%.

Why do Diversified Conveyors employees quit?

Pros

DCI offers a competitive salary for enginners, plus bonuses

Cons

DCI makes a point of being a “Christian” company, so your religion will come up during the hiring process and you will be expected to participate in religious observances regularly during your work. In spite of that, they have a history of laying off employees with no warning, no severance, and no transition period. You could be looking for a job at any time. If you’re not an engineer, DCI takes advantage of state programs to pay sub-minimum wage.

In spite of that, they have a history of laying off employees with no warning, no severance, and no transition period.
