    Pros

    Great family atmosphere. I liked the people I worked with on the floor and think that they did a good job of including us when working on problems.

    Cons

    Worked a lot of hours but the OT was great. Not a lot of bad things about the company...would have liked so see management on the floor more.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get everyone involved when there is a problem. Would be good to have management involved more when there are issues.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Autocam full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good job security as long as you don't do drugs or steal. Located away from city traffic. Growing company with some friendly employees.

    Cons

    It's not what you know, or how much you do that matters most. It's who else in the company you are related to. Hard working employees get the same raises as the lazy ones.

    Advice to Management

    Give people outside of the 4 dominant families a chance in higher paying jobs. Reward the hard workers and get rid of the lazy ones. More vacation time should be given considering the standard work week is 50hrs. Pay is on the low side too.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Good starting pay for machinists
    Great health benefits
    Bosses create good working environment

    Cons

    Dirty work
    Long hours
    Limited advancement
    Hard workers are not always rewarded while lesser employees are continually allowed to simply skate by

    Advice to Management

    Reward the ones that work their butts off and make good product rather than staying content with them in their current position. This creates unhappy employees

    I have been working at Autocam full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Company provides employees benefits for self training such as pay raises for each course. Also provides tuition for schooling to better educate yourself.

    Cons

    I have not yet experienced many flaws. The only flaw thus far that could be aggravating to some is that they don't always train in depth.
