      Pros

      Company culture, compensation, coworkers, location, management, facilities, honestly I have trouble finding problems with anything. The company is considerate of the physical and mental needs of their employees, both part time and fullt time, and they are very interested in retaining people. Most of my coworkers have been here for at least a decade and I anticipate staying for quite some time. Ever since my part time contract ran out, I've been looking for any opportunity to get back, preferably as a full time employee, and it fell in my lap!

      Cons

      Lots of meetings? It's not so much a con as sometimes I forget about a meeting and then have to scramble. Maybe the onboarding process could be streamlined a little more, but it was alright for a group that doesn't hire frequently because they retain most everyone they hire.

      Pros

      This is a very well compensated job for the area. The benefits are good, the health insurance is at or below average. The company takes care of its workers and is very safety oriented.

      Cons

      Challenging field, plus there is danger involved with working with chemicals. Depending on your title, most of the bargaining unit workers work swing shift. This may not be a Con for everyone but this is a very "woke" company. I am all for inclusion but i don't agree with sacrificing qualifications for a more diverse working area.

      Pros

      Great working environment, very inclusive. Management appears to care alot about diversity and inclusion. Many opportunities to develop oneself and work on projects to spotlight your strengths. Possibility for movement internally to keep yourself challenged and to meet your career goals. Many locations globally for those that are mobile and would like to develop even faster! Large company provides many networking possibilities.

      Cons

      It's a large, global corporation...change can feel like it happens slowly. Lots of layers of management. Decision-making has to go through many layers of the organization.

      Pros

      I took this job as an entry-level opportunity to get started in the field. The staff at this facility are very friendly, management is great, pay is good, and opportunities to learn are endless.

      Cons

      Most workers in this position are contracted through a third party rather than being hired on directly by the company. Benefits are not as great as other positions, however, if looking for a foot-in-the-door opportunity, this is a great start.
