    I have been working at Donatelle Plastics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some talented people that still work there but most are leaving.

    Cons

    The leadership group treats employees and customers terrible. Very arrogant, think customers owe them. Treats employees like servants. Don't want you to think. NDA is like Big Brother. Slimey group.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership team should leave so they don't put Donatelle out of business.

    I worked at Donatelle Plastics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are friendly and pretty much willing to help one another for common goals and objectives etc. the engineering and tooling dept are very knowledgeable and experienced.

    Cons

    Mgmt is entirely too conservative and risk adverse to ever grow the business significantly. They treat customers like they are idiots and wonder why they pull the business out. Their cost structure / pricing is in left field and they have no low cost mfg locations or platforms so they will never be able to compete in an ever increasing competitive market for injection molding & machining. They think they are coming up with a revolutionary concept with injection molding when there are dozens of competitors out there making them look like fools with their pricing and delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company asap while it still has some value

    I have been working at Donatelle Plastics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the people are nice

    Cons

    They have a point system for attendance that is a joke. I was late by a couple minutes a couple of times less than a 2 minutes each time and it went on my record and was told that I could be fired for it, but there are people that take 30 to 40 minute breaks when they are only supposed to have 15 minute breaks. This affects morale when someone is waiting to go on break and someone is sitting in the brek room and chatting with their friends for an 10 to 15 minutes longer than they are supposed to. They also state that people are not allowed to have cell phones on the production floor, but it seems to only apply to certain people since many of the employees sit there texting or use head phones to disguise the fact that they are talking to people while ohers sit and watch movies while they are at work.

    Advice to Management

    You want to find out who your good employees are? Make people punch in and out for breaks and punish the people that cover for others that take 40 minute breaks rather than punish people who are 2 minutes late for work

    I worked at Donatelle Plastics full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed the people and mission of Donatelle. They had great equipment and a want to improve.

    Cons

    In the end everyone was just a number, Management didn't care who or what you did for the company, it was all about the bottom line and how much you were costing them.
