    I have been working at CoorsTek full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The work can be interesting, and if you're patient there is a chance of moving up. Full time work.

    Cons

    Incredibly poor management Weak pay for high expectation of diligence and adaptability The metrics for success and advancement are murky at best

    Advice to Management

    Management frequently speaks about being transparent, and about advancement opportunities, while not being clear on their actual plans nor on the path to advancement. Rather than speaking to people on the floor, and troubleshooting issues real time, management tells employees to come to them about issues and concerns while making no effort to be approachable(not even bothering with genuine hellos with workers they... pass on the floor). They then use monthly plant meetings as a placeholder for meaningful two way communication.

    I worked at CoorsTek full-time

    Pros

    Wage descent in some areas.

    Cons

    Favoritism is huge here. It is a hire and fire mentality. As well as plant shut downs regularly a week at a time so hard to schedule p.t.o. Management is distant for towards the off shifts and overall would never recommend this as a place of work.

    Advice to Management

    Real non bias evaluation on area leads and workers.
