    Former Employee - VSD Supervisor in Kettering, OH
    Former Employee - VSD Supervisor in Kettering, OH
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Terrific benefits package
    good 401K plan
    were well treated if you were a "favorite"
    good training opportunities for mid level management
    good employee discount

    Cons

    had to work hard to have upper level management recognize team members
    a distinct line between the "cool" managers and "uncool" - very juvenile management culture
    employees were belittled behind closed doors
    assumptions were made about peoples' worth and work volume based on arbitrary numbers
    ideas funneled up to upper level management were not considered until they "became" the manager's or director's ideas
    many of the managers/supervisors were under educated. Some lied on their resumes to get positions and "favorites" were often played for promotions
    Some upper level management members were extremely egotistical

    Advice to Management

    Value ALL the people who work for you, not just the ones you like personally.
