    Pros

    Good management, and good team aspects. Considerable HR support, and reasonable benefits to company size. Strong saftety and work ethic for training at the plants. Focus on production and processes is excellent, and a significant asset to this organization. Union environment, so as long as you are pro-union this is a significant and fair way to treat employees.

    Cons

    Not always fair about promotions with others, appears politics are more heavily involved than in simililar industries. Seems that there are many senior managers and few actual workers doing what is needed. Pressure to scheduling is often greater than ability of team in a reasonable timeframe.

    Advice to Management

    Create more meetings between all levels of employees, have routine conversations at front line of the company.
