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

    Pros

    The upside of this job was getting more work experience as an machine operator and doing maintenance work. During employee work hours, it's pretty much laid back.

    Cons

    The downside about this job was when the machine breaks down and having to change something out like bearings or putting a whole new roller in the machine. Summer is really hot and winter is really cold.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs more help at maintenance and needs to show there employee's more respect than what they do. Salary is not all that great for the work that you have to do.

    I have been working at Edwards full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, relaxed(mostly), decent work/life balance

    Cons

    Not enough tools for everyone to use, not enough computers for everyone, not enough seats for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    If you want employees to do quality work, give them a quality work environment. Lacking tools and space to do the job properly will hinder progress and eventually portray a bad image to the customer. Although the job is "temporary" through a ramp, it doesn't have to feel that way to employees.
