    I have been working at Amfuel (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent manufacturing work, and interesting.
    CEO is a very nice guy who actually listens to employees. This is relatively unheard of in many businesses especially manufacturing jobs.

    Cons

    Appear somewhat disorganized.

    Feels like they are potentially dishonest or deceptive with employees on some issues, whether this is on purpose or because of said disorganization Is hard to say.

    Pay is not very good at all compared to other manufacturing jobs, one could stock groceries for the same pay that Amfuel expects you to handcraft government and civilian fuel cells, which is complicated, somewhat tedious and exacting work.

    Advice to Management

    Too many chiefs, not enough indians.

    I worked at Amfuel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In my home town, Military contractor, was close to my home. I like people working there. Some very talented people working there.

    Cons

    The plant was sold and is in the processes of being closed. Union killed the local job opportunity for many people of the surrounding area. there were certain groups of lazy people that caused a bunch of production mistakes and repairs that drove overtime to meet customer demand.

    Advice to Management

    get rid of union before it helps to ensure the doors are closed forever.

    Pros

    The product goes toward helping our nation's warriors.Cost of living in area is pretty low comapred to bigger work centers in the state.

    Cons

    Horrid working conditions, complete mismanagement of company by local as well as corporate leaders, dishonest actions by local management, physical shape of facilities is antiquated and actually dangerous.

    Advice to Management

    Management team needs to think employee first instead of self-preservation. That may lead to better relations with work force. Management, from new CEO on down, are so arrogant, conniving, and dishonest that there is no way that the company will be able to be successful.
