Pros

decent pay for the area, most coworkers at the plant level are competent, mid level management wants employees to succeed.

Cons

no work/life balance, no opportunity for growth, once you take a job with POET you are either a lifer or looking for another job. POET makes all of their employees sign a very broad non-compete, which basically says you can't work for another ethanol company anywhere POET MAY POTENTIALLY do business. constantly threatens and berates lower level employees with termination. Employee turnover rate extremely high. Senior management personnel don't even follow their own mantra(Teamwork, Communication, Leave Ego at the door). scary thing that most mid level engineers and management know less about the plants than the management and hourly employees that work there, yet treat them as ignorant and incompetent.

Advice to Management

pull your heads out from where the sun doesn't shine and realize that the company is stagnant and that you need to learn to trust and respect your employees. there is a reason the turn over rate for POET is apporximatley 30% at most of your plants.
