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

    Pros

    Celgard is a decent company to work for with decent pay. They offer good benefits as well and growth potential.

    Cons

    Celgard has many odd shifts such as 12-hour shifts which require working every other weekend. Celgard is also undergoing structural changes.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that supervisors are appropriate for their position. It seems that other employees may be more deserving of promotions before the position is filled from the outside.

    I worked at Celgard (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In a competitive market with potential. Products are high quality with great margins. Raw material costs are exceedingly low.

    Cons

    No loyalty to employees. Management will not listen to opinions that do not fit their beliefs. Very prejudiced with regards to employees moving up within the company. If you don't fit their mold forget staying with this company. Older employees are expendable.

    Advice to Management

    Higher managers that know manufacturing. Respect employees that have come up through the ranks. Realize that front line 24 hour employees are important to manufacturing success and treat them with respect.

    Pros

    Good benefits-pretty good pay-hours are rotating shifts but they are manageable-nice people to work with-work is not hard

    Cons

    not many perks- hard to get promotion unless you're in the click-no bonuses-raises are usually 2.5% once a year

    Eveyone needs to get on the same page. A lot of favoritism shown throughout the management perspectives
