    Pros

    Pays better than other non union jobs in town

    Cons

    Work schedules are not very flexible, and if you need time off you will burn a lot of your PTO to do so due to the long work days scheduled, if you can get it approved

    Pros

    Great personnel throughout the organization. Talented and long-tenured employees are a great help to incoming employees and share extensive specialty knowledge. This is a great place for metallurgists.

    Cons

    The company is limiting capital investment after heavy investment in two major facilities in the past 10 years. Corporate decisions are not as far-sighted as they were 10 years ago.

    when certain people are in the office the atmosphere is very tense, its like walking on egg shell. no sense of direction and some people over use there power. not a lot of diversity there.

    Advice to Management

    get some direction and better management some people aren't worth the salary they make.
