    I have been working at Dura Automotive full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Its close to where I live.

    Cons

    Going on 3 years without out a raise, Company suspended 401k match on May 1 2020, Company did away with the employee recognition program. (Yep.....Trump trickle down seems to be working great for us..) ZERO communication from management on the future of our company. Etc. *UPDATE 9/1/2020* So I hear over the weekend Dura is investing nearly 60 million in a facility in Alabama which would create nearly 300 jobs for that area...all while at the plant I work struggles to get the simplest things like soap to clean our hands and light bulbs to see amongst other things we need to do our jobs......
