Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Get your feet wet in the forging industry. You can learn a lot in a small period of time.
-Long leash. You get to do your job the way you want.
-Pay is ok.

Cons

Promises of sales graduate program are a hoax. Meant as a place for senior management to give jobs to their relatives and connections who have yet to aspire in life.
-Quarterly bonus program is not actually quarterly.
-For salary workers 11h days are regular. Saturdays mandatory. Lunches discouraged.
-Saturdays at the end of the month are 12h minimum days.

Advice to Management

Stop sacrificing Monroe for the good of the company.
-Build the integrity of the Graduate Program.
-Keep to your promises. Firth Rixson no longer has any honor.
