No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Good engineers, maintenance, employees; a lot of employees work hard to make a good product and make the company successful, an honest group of people loyal to the company.

Cons

Terrible, oppressive GM/President - a bully; too many upper-management people that end up confusing operations instead of streamlining them; good old boy network with friends of GM/President; union was brought in recently due to terrible employee relations

Advice to Management

Fire GM/President, reduce upper-management people, treat employees fairly
