Pros

It was a good place to start right out of college. Good bonuses, good atmosphere, learned a lot that enabled me to move on to a bigger/better job elsewhere

Cons

Worked 55-60+ hours each week for a $40,000 salary. All of my employees made way more per year than I did since I didn't get paid overtime. Way too much demand for the amount they are willing to pay. Guess that explains the high turnover. Other than that though, good place to work!

Advice to Management

Allow salaried employees to comp back hours over 45 per week. Or pay them what a 60 hour week is worth.

    Pros

    80% market share allows great profit margins. Solid and conservative financial approach. Gets great support from local government and is a major employer. Low turn-over (before auto collapse).

    Cons

    More geared to reactionary instead of preventative work style and philosophy. This is an automotive supplier and is vulnerable to that industry's cyclical nature.

    Advice to Management

    NEVER let go of the reigns Fred! (current CEO). Deep and true quality effort is needed to be re-established. Carefully select and utilize expert consultants to get up to speed quicker.


  2. "Great employer that strives for development and growth."
