    Travel and working on teams that are very diverse.

    For a 24 hour facility, there should be just as much line support at night as there is during the day.

    Pros

    Pay is pretty good other than that there is no pros more cons

    Cons

    Too much favoritism, they crap on the hard worker, they have their little groups if you're not apart of it they mistreat you. They let certain employees get away with anything like missing a drug test leaving early coming in late and fixing their time. Some supervisors and employees hang out Alot outside work and party.

    Fire the bad supervisors

    Pros

    The work is simple, the pay is decent and there are bonuses and benefits if you stick it out.

    Cons

    The cons are practically those that you'll find anywhere you go. It's a small plant where everybody knows everybody. If you can avoid drama, try do so. Keep to yourself and you'll do fine.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the advice that is given daily. Make a suggestion box. Communicate information between shifts more effectively.

    I worked at AGC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid leadership, especially the American leadership (the CEO is always a Japanese expat, and gets changed up every two or three years). Financial very stable. Benefits, especially the 401(k), are off the chart fantastic. Pay is highly competitive. The work will challenge you. In many jobs, international travel (mostly to Tokyo, always in business class) is necessary.

    Cons

    The constant turnover of CEO leads to fits and starts and inconsistency. Office environment is pretty run down, although I hear they're renovating some spaces. Senior leadership is very weak at providing attaboys, which led me to feel as though my accomplishments and work were meaningless. Sometimes Japan gets too involved, and they don't understand how business in the US works.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a local to be CEO.
