    I have been working at GKN full-time

    Pros

    It pays well for the area

    Cons

    Management makes poor decisions when it comes to production planning and there is a lack of communication

    Advice to Management

    Use some common sense when planning downtime on machines. Also don't ignore people on the off shifts
