    I worked at Coating Excellence International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of improvement opportunities. Most people are friendly. Smaller company meaning more hats to wear. Very intelligent engineers with many years of experience to learn from.

    Cons

    Lots of office politics. People get fired without notice. Emplyees would walk out same day without notice due to managemebt style. Company needs help.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends into management roles when they their knowledge isn't up to par.

    Pros

    Community work atmosphere. Small enough company to know everyone in the office, yet large enough to handle fortune 500 accounts.

    Cons

    Limited funding for research and development due to the fact the company was in the end of their private equity life cycle. Focusing on positioning the company for resale to the next private equity or strategic partner. Too cautious at entering target markets.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on finding ways to differentiate the company and products, not just breakdown competitor structures and reverse engineer. Diversify from current product lines that are declining.

    I have been working at Coating Excellence International full-time

    Pros

    The production employees are a fantastic group of people to work with. Clean, modern facilities. Newer machinery.

    Cons

    Constantly changing upper management down to the production managers. This makes all of the goals and procedures constantly change and no one can get used to a system.

    Advice to Management

    Find some consistency.

    Pros

    Decent company the people and machines are great.

    Cons

    Ever since Bill left and no one with a spine walks the floor to learn of machine problems or people complaints the plant has terrible moral. The management side needs the a review. The office needs to cut the fat.

    Advice to Management

    Learn about fixing the problems. Rather than blaming the employees. Need to put money in to get money out. Can run lean on thing we need do more with less really!!!

    Pros

    Decent pay. Great people on the floor to work with. They attempt to use a legacy approach to training with little success.

    Cons

    Don't expect much from anyone above your supervisor. Ignorance is abound. Shifts change with little to no notice. They claim priorities are safety, quality, speed in that order, however supervisors are only worried about speed.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your home problems at the door. Trust your operators know what they are doing and let them work
