    Pros

    they manufacture interesting products, good location

    Cons

    Low morale. Underpaid. There are no opportunities for advancement, pay raises for hourly employees stopped years ago, and will not be coming back anytime soon. Wages are well below industry standard. Favoritism is rampant, and it's easy to sense the frustration and general dissatisfaction most coworkers have when you ask them about Diamond. You must produce (and pay for) a doctors note if you take a sick day. They will harass you about how many sick days you have taken even when it's below the number of sick days you're allotted each year. They won't keep employees informed and if you ask a direct question rarely will you get a direct answer.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your employees what they're worth.

    Pros

    I didn't have to move

    Cons

    lack of respect, underpaid, overworked, pay doesn't match responsibilities. no clear direction from senior management. There no opportunities to get a promotion but they will increase your responsibilities and work load until you break. If your solution / answer is not what senior management wants to hear then it will be ignored.

    Advice to Management

    provide a detail organization chart. Stand by your decisions. Create accurate and realistic schedules that can be acheived.
