    Pros

    I loved my job because the testing of raw materials was excepted or rejected by me for safety of the materials. I wasn't doing the same thing on a daily basis and we were communicating with supervisors and finding ways to better the results and finding problems and solving them.

    Cons

    I hated that the company went out of business on Continental Blvd. They shifted our work to Mexico after a large downside during the year of 2007-2008.

    Pros

    Company known for its engineering edge. The german culture of doing things with excellence permeates the organization. The networking opportunities from such a large company are a plus.

    Cons

    There is a lot of red tape at this company. Management expects you to get a lot of work done with not so competitive pay. The industry is not in good shape. They expect you to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Give the employees the flexibility of time. When an employee won't stay long hours do not take it against it, we do have a life after work.
