Pros

Pays great. Period. Lots of overtime if you want it.

Cons

This place is a meat grinder. People in, people out. they don't care how good of a job you do as long as you don't bend or break any of the rules in their precious policy manual. Middle management (resources) are not allowed to use their own discretion and must live or die by the policy manual - which is constantly being changed to "meet business needs". Leadership Team is only concerned about numbers and their bottom line. Very disconnected with the employees at the bottom of the food chain. Constantly trying to drive how "It's a Great Place to be", thinking that if you say it enough you may eventually believe it.

Advice to Management

Doesn't matter. Advice from people below is generally ignored.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to broaden skill sets, flexible (but long) work schedules, great compensation packageds and competitive salaries, comfortable work environment, on site gym, subsidized cafeteria.

    Cons

    It's been a slow annihilation... management decision to outsource key areas and reduce employee workforce...the survivors do not consider themselves fortunate and anticipate their turn will come in the not too distant future.

    Advice to Management

    Has management not learned! Outsourcing has not been cost effective and has not worked in the past. What makes you think it is going to work now?

    Pros

    Hourly employees are very knowledgeable, great learning experience

    Cons

    Politics, Politics, Politics...

    This place is the Mickey Mouse club. Some senior leaders are either completely incompetent or flex their schedules to the point that they are never seen. The hourly employees are the true experts that keep this place moving in a forward direction. Managers with ZERO life / work experience fresh out of college dominate the ranks and take credit for the good their teams do. Moreover, these folks usually make it to leadership roles and carry their supreme ignorance with them...

    Bottom line, if you are a true leader, this is not the place for you. They want people that can be "molded" into mousketeers...

    Advice to Management

    Set an example to front line managers by following through. Be visible to team members...be honest. Practice diversity and inclusion, rather than use this tactic as window dressing...

    The HR department (with the exception of one person) should take time to learn the various jobs and environments that are living and breathing on each shift so they can get a better idea of what really is happening. They are completely oblivious, and operate within an extremely bureaucratic platform.

    At the end of the day, favorable metrics are not the measuring stick....stop being satisfied with poor performance and harmony.
