    Good pay and good benefits steady work flow l. Try to rise above and avoid bully's that run the company

    Cons

    Bullying is promoted tolerated and rewarded people are called stupid made fun of by a select couple of people management does nothing about it. Also a complete lack of training . You will have people sitting around all day trying to find mistakes of people that are not part of there click and then turn any mistake u make into management. Also women beware are the same people are allowed to sexual harass women terrible work environment due to a couple of people

    Pros

    Very friendly people
    The love to help when you don't understand something

    Cons

    One of the partners is not the most friendly and wants done what they want done immediately
    Sometimes they say they are going to do one thing, and they then go and do the exact opposite

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand that things take time and that no matter what you feel, you can't have everything you want right away.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance. Good emphasis on safety. Many cross functional teams but pointless as it is beyond reach.

    Cons

    1. Silo mentality and zero team work.
    2. Slow or no response to issues.
    3. Blame culture. Not looking at systems but focus failures on individual.
    4. With such varied and complicated product offerings, shocking that even 10+ years employees had no training.
    5. Throwing pot shots at one another is the order of the day. Extremely bad culture and dissuade any would be pro active workers. Do more? Get blamed more.
    6. Good at packaging but low on deliverables.
    7. Claimed to understand customer's needs and wants but actually living aloof. Deals only the big and neglects the upcoming and promising.
    8. Snobbish. Charge exorbitant price for products and services but performance is mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Customers needs are evolving. Not helped by super old school and super out of touch senior managers. Needs, wants and products/services offering not addressing big gaps (perceived versus needs).

    I worked at Edwards full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoyed working on shift with coworkers.

    Cons

    Very understaffed due to fixed contract, so the more work that can be done with less employees, that's more money in company's pocket. Safety is NOT important. There were constant safety meetings and emails, but proper safety equipment was not provided, and to follow safety procedures properly, the headcount would need to have doubled. Safety was preached, but when it came time to get the work done, management turned their head the other way so long as the work was getting done FAST. In almost 2 years working there, NEVER once had a one-on-one with manager concerning my performance, or what my goals were, or any discussion what-so-ever.

    Advice to Management

    Need to hire site manager with college degree, and does NOT walk around with chess puffed out and acting like he's better and smarter than everyone else. Train site manager on how to NOT be arrogant, egotistical, disrespectful, and out right rude!!!!
