Pros

It is a true challenge.

Cons

Refusal to improve logistics at Building B.

Advice to Management

Build a WIP cooler in building B to place to stage product. Protect integrity of the product, stop placing it in the the hallway. No other company that has a product as valuable as Boehringer's would stage temprature controlled product in a hallway.

    Pros

    They represent the best of both worlds. They are a privately held company where the owners have a personal stake in operations, but with the resources to compete with publically traded firms. I also like the fact that once you have been able to demonstrate your ideas have merit, they are willing to fund the project so that it can be completed the right way the first time.

    Cons

    While they provide a competitive 401K compensation program, it isn't possible to buy shares in BI since they are a privately held firm, which is one of the downsides of working for a privately held firm. Otherwise no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    My recommendation would be to continue to challenge senior leaders and managers to spend more time on the floor. I would also recommend that more managers take their lunch to the break room and eat with their staff. It builds comraderie and will give you a chance to learn more about what's going on in production and with your team.
