      Pros

      Let the leaders do their job and support when necessary. It's the best of both worlds, autonomy of a smaller business unit with the support and capital at the corporate level.

      Cons

      Can get sucked into the quarterly crunch of a public company.

      Pros

      Quarterly bonus based on shop wide production, good amount of PTO

      Cons

      Bad management, they hired people with absolutely no experience in the field. Lots of premature layoffs that lead to employees being overworked and huge hiring surges that end up with lots of inexperience employees making bad parts.

      AVOID THIS COMPANY

      Oct 23, 2020 - Anonymous Employee 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      The only good thing that I can say is that are some good, dedicated staff that genuinely care about the success of their teams and the company but the cons outweigh any pros related to that piece of the business.

      Cons

      I would avoid joining this company. The pitches are enticing when you are in the recruiting process but once you come on board, you will quickly see that you are set up to fail. The sites are grossly understaffed, and much of the staff are poorly trained/under-qualified which puts a considerable amount of stress and pressure on those that are actually trained/qualified to do their jobs. There’s a never-ending cycle of layoffs which crushes morale and makes it extremely difficult to remain efficient and effective in your role due to constantly having to train and re-train new and/or consolidated teams every few months. As soon as the “Leadership Team” deems you problematic (for any reason, valid or not), you will be fired or put on the lay off list. There are also lots of projects that have to be done but there aren’t enough people to realistically get them done effectively. In fact, most of the projects get in the way of getting what really needs to get done. The ERP and other systems are horrible and no one in IT or leadership is competent enough to get a handle on it. There is almost no automation and everything is done manually, everything from operating the machinery to running reports and analyzing data.
