    I worked at Ascend full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good people (mechanics, techs, operators, engineers) to work with.

    Cons

    Little career path for technical advancement. Too lean manpower.

    Advice to Management

    Value your engineers as essential assets not necessary liabilities to bottom line. The hive will die without capable worker bees.

    I have been working at Ascend full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and employee benefits. I have not seen a company put more effort into Community Relations and taking care of their employees well being. Ascend Cares is something that all Ascend employees should be proud about. Ascend truly cares about the employees safety. We just added new senior leadership which has really helped with setting a clearer and better defined direction for the Nylon Division. We have great employees at the Greenwood site and we have really raised the bar with approved plant wide performance through the dedicated efforts of all our employees.

    Cons

    The need to update systems company wide. We have started the change process regarding this so the organization recognizes the need to make this change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on finding/hiring great leaders. Continue to focus on the needed changes to make Ascend the employer to work for. With the most recent hiring's of senior leaders, the Nylon Division is moving in the right direction.
