    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. I need 20 words minimum and I can't think of anything else good to say right now.

    Cons

    Management that doesn't know how to manage or treat their employees with respect. Management support is crappy when dealing with internal or external customers. Company doesn't care about their people as individuals. They just keep piling the work on even if it is driving people into the ground. Crappy review system which in the end is based on how much your boss does/doesn't like you (not how well you do or don't do at your job). Not properly staffed at working level, very management heavy.

    Advice to Management

    - Hire non confrontational management
     -Staff appropriately at working level
    -Value your employee's opinions
    -Implement systems that are user friendly and work together (Stop developing systems that are harder to use each time and that you need a secret decoder ring to figure out)
    -Promote from within
    - Need to get with the times and have the Ability to work from home
    - Ability to buy vacation time
    -Value people as individuals
    -Stop piling work onto people until they break (people are literally having heart attacks and strokes at work)
    -JOB SHADOW YOUR EMPLOYEES AS A MANAGER SO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY DO/DEAL WITH EACH DAY BEFORE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RATE THEM ON THEIR REVIEW

    Pros

    Large company with a solid track record

    Company is very top heavy. Plants are run to lean in order to have more at home office. Corporate is very pro safety but plant managers are only focused on production and will not spend money for safety needs.

    Have less executive directors and more base staff to get things done. Ensure the plants have adequate staffing.
