    I have been working at Smith & Nephew full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great Pay
    Great Benefits Package
    Flexible Hours
    Vacation Time is almost never denied

    Cons

    Poor communication between shifts and management to shop floor.
     Front line managers and middle management seem to have an entirely different set of values/ goals.
    Talented employees are often overlooked and almost never utilized.
    Ongoing machining issues are addressed but never followed through to a complete resolution.
    Morale is terrible in the plant, makes for a very uncomfortable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Get on the same page. Please realize that this plant has some very talented people, use them. Listen to the people that manufacture your parts. People are leaving/ transfer from this plant left and right, its time to take a look at why morale is always down.
