    I have been working at American Colloid Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benifits are great. The pay is good, and management provides equality.

    Cons

    Constant dirtiness, and quite a few employees do not pull their own weight making the motivation levels go down. People are constantly smoking, and I'm a non smoker.

    I worked at American Colloid Company full-time

    Pros

    Fair initial pay but little room for advancement

    Cons

    People treated like they are expendable. Much talk about Safety, people being first, but in reality they treat people like dirt. They do not follow through on commitments, and they DO NOT value people. Management has moved to an all new level of micromanagement, and shows absolutely no trust.

    I have been working at American Colloid Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Money (especially when there is endless mandatory overtime) 2 weeks paid vacation, health, dental, vision, 401k, paid breaks, boot and safety glasses reimbursement.

    Cons

    Very little time off, mandatory overtime 58-66 hours a week, no sick/personal days, poor under qualified management, little quality control, equipment is worn and barely functioning, most of it is hobbled together. They care little about your health and well being, including that of your family.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at American Colloid Company full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Safety, quality, productivity...always in that order. Operational excellence based, with a strong lean manufacturing culture. Continuous improvement is evident, with 100% plant participation.

    Cons

    Ability to learn and grow at a rapid pace, albeit at a volunteer-based rate. IT bottlenecks are abundant. Purely metrics driven, without attention or focus to bottom line success or failures.

    I worked at American Colloid Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Company used to care about it's employees when it was ACC. They would allow us to own our positions and operate in a entrepreneurial capacity. Cared about quality and safety and used that as a selling point with potential customers.

    Cons

    Bought out by MTI and went right down the toilet. Doesn't care about employees and only cares about head count. Takes Lean Manufacturing to a whole new level. And by this I mean the expect each person to do more and more with less and less. Does not invest in their plants and runs them into the ground before eventually discarding them.
