    Pros

    Training is awesome, SOME people are good people.

    Cons

    Most people are not good. The place is full of soft pampered people. You cant say anything with out offending anyone. Too much gossip, ruins days of productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Management is full of favoritists. I was affected by it first hand. stop listening to your favorites. All they do is gossip lies. Cell captains are not real leaders, all they do is gossip and talk horribly of other team mates. The place is toxic, people cant mind their own business worst of all, they speculate everything they gossip about. CULT, low loyalty from coworkers.

    I worked at Creation Technologies (More than a year)

    Pros

    When I started the emphasis was on chemistry and culture. I enjoyed the first name basis that we all had and that the GM knew the production team members by name.

    Cons

    Live and die by numbers and meetings, meetings, meetings . Top down emphasis on inventory turns and levels. Asking to achieve full current customer needs and transform at the same time. High stress and burnout.

    Advice to Management

    What happened to the entrepreneurial spirit of the business units ? "You are all condemned men we keep you alive to serve the ship now row well and live"

    Pros

    they are quality oriented & lot of overtime to make extra money by putting extra hours.

    Cons

    There are lot of favoritism when promotion & raise come. some people trying to get work on their name even though they know that it was done by some one else. Some are it is not friendly environment. No one appreciate your work. There is lot of issue with business & it is very unpredictable, so survival for long time is questionable.

    Advice to Management

    No favoritism, advancement base on liking & not on knowledgeable. Apply rule same to each & every employee.

    Pros

    The People, the benefits, the support from other BU's, the emphasis on people's wellness, the way they give back to the community.

    Cons

    It's a challenge being a CM. We are always caught in the middle between price and delivery. Being a CFTL means that you have all of the responsibility with no authority.

    Advice to Management

    Need better acquisition team. Consistently in processes would help adopt best business practices.
