    Pros

    Steady job, lotsa overtime if you want to make extramoney.

    Cons

    HR shamelessly lies to everybody at the interview about hiring after 90 days and get the benefits, - in reality it takes up to 2! years. That is why this place has a terrible turnover. People come and go.

    Pros

    Good people at the working level.

    Cons

    Company grew quickly & could not keep up with orders due to lack of quality systems and inability to get parts in the door to make products . Reactive rather than proactive

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who can revamp the shipping and receiving area. Look at your over-crowded work spaces. People don't like sitting on top of each other. Treat people with respect!

    Pros

    The employees look out for each other when leadership fails to, they are more like a family. It is a pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    Leadership is out of touch with daily challenges, and is quick to criticize decisions made by mid-level managers doing the best with their situation. They are definitely more focused on making end of month/quarter financial goals than conducting efficient and cost effective operations planning. It is common practice to pull in orders ahead of schedule thereby throwing off suppliers, purchasing, logistics, quality control, machinists, assemblers, and everyone along the entire supply chain just to hit a specific figure by a specific date. Never mind if the customer wasn't ready for the order too! The financial team is most revered but deserves all the blame for a poor COG, a metric not even on their radar.

    Pros

    Floor level employees try, until they are beaten into giving up.

    Cons

    Completely inadequate management at every level. Constant firefighting. Rules only apply when it is convenient. Disastrous oversight of suppliers. Rampant favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Company could use a complete shakeup of management, upper and mid.
