    Pros

    the other staff I worked with

    Cons

    Management, the people making the money are treated very poorly, the higher ups are making a ton of money sitting behind a desk while the ones doing all the work are underpaid and treated like we are in 2nd grade.

    Good for a short amount of time

    Pros

    The pay is decent, but not much in the way of raises after a while. Stable hours.

    Cons

    Quite frankly, once you are hired they own you. Mandatory overtime, all the time. Sometimes forced Saturdays too. You will have no free time. And depending on what line you work on, you don't stop moving all day. Overall, no matter what is going on at home, you will have to work extra hours if they want you to.

    Pros

    They will put you in a weld school for a week to teach you. Good pay for new welders. Overtime is available if you want it.

    Cons

    Very low potential for raises. Union keeps topped out guys less than $2/hour above what I make with 8 months experience. Low potential to get a salaried position, too. Half a mile walk from the parking lot to the buildings. Sucks when it rains/is cold.

    Pros

    East is a company that truly demonstrates employee loyalty. They have ambitious technology goals, and the entire executive team is committed to achieving them. If you are a self-motivated IT worker or engineer, you can really make a difference here.

    Cons

    Limited upwards mobility. Remote work is allowed only in exceptional situations. Very few windows in office.

    A lot of old employees that are stuck in their ways. Too much reliance on specific people. Responsibility is shrugged off.

    Pros

    Union shop with good health ins, decent first year wage, 11 paid holidays, 60 hr max work week and OT paid on the 8.

    Cons

    Union pay scale rewarding unskilled workers, lack of organization and qualified managers. Taking a salary job in first line management almost always means a pay cut. 3 years to top rate and 8 years for a third week of vacation
