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

    Pros

    World wide company with many job opportunities for movement and advancement within the company. Employee owned

    Cons

    Salaries are moderate and some people are in supervisory roles and positions without management training or experience.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to make a person a Site Lead or supervisor, spend the money and the time to train them so that they understand and know laws associated with their positions and titles. Promotion for the sake of someone being next in line should never be the way a person becomes a supervisor over others without proper vetting and training.
