    Pros

    Great company with good benefits. Employees are helpful, fun loving and easy going. Average working years of experience is more than other private companies.

    Cons

    Employees who are working with the company for so many years, are taking things for granted. They need to adapt new technologies, new culture and ethics.

    I worked at FXI full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Weekly checks are good, nice co-workers, and the immediate supervisors are good people.

    Cons

    The pay is low, the overtime is issued with little warning, the health insurance premiums are expensive. Raises are very small, if at all, and there are no bonuses. The morale is low, and a lot of the employees who have a ton of seniority hate their jobs making it tough to maintain a positive attitude. The powers that be seem to be more interested in pinching pennies, and patting themselves on the back rather than making the necessary investments to have a great factory. This factory is disorganised at best. HR has no idea what is going on on the floor. Maybe not their fault, but HR should know what time first shift starts their workday.

    Advice to Management

    Invest money into your two most valuable resources. Your employees and your machines. Striving to be a world class organization is great, but the world class organizations attract the talent to maintain that standard. Thoroughly go through your job grades, and give the raises where necessary. A factory that small should not be a revolving door of employees.

    Pros

    I honestly can't think of anything positive that came from my experience there.

    Cons

    EVERYTHING!!! Not even exaggerating.....everything......

    DO NOT....I repeat....DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!

    I've had several jobs throughout my career, but this was by far the worst company and department that I've ever worked for. Management expects you to be a robot, head down and typing nonstop. Mistakes, regardless of how minor in nature, are unacceptable and you are made to feel stupid when asking questions. Executives are all pompous, elitist, self-absorbed narcissists who quite obviously believe they're better than everyone else.

    Managers play "favorites" big time and if you're not one of the favorites, you're treated like absolute GARBAGE. Even just walking in the hallways, I would try and say "Good Morning" or maybe "Hello" to the Managers, Senior Managers, and C-Suite Executives when they were present on our floor. I'm not exaggerating at all, but you're just as likely to be met with a dirty look, or even just be completely ignored altogether, as you are likely to get a friendly response in return. NOT EXAGGERATING ONE BIT.....

    With regards to the C-Suite Executives and High-Level Management, picture a group of guys who were all ridiculous dorks in middle school, high school, and even early college. They all came from rich families, with fathers who would hand them down either an established family business, expedited career paths thanks to powerful corporate connections, or even just astronomical trust funds. Now they're all grown up, think they're better than everyone, and are determined to make the lives of others miserable, strictly out of spite from all those childhood years of dorkiness.

    The only way to advance is to drink the kool-aid and laugh hysterically at their bush-league jokes, pretty just kissing the right peoples' behinds in the hopes of one day joining their arrogant band of grown-up dorks who almost literally OOZE entitlement. I've never been more unhappy in my entire life than when I was working at FXI.....

    Advice to Management

    Step down....effective immediately.....

    A employee who has been there a long time is not always an asset but can be a liability to company by running off new employees who actually care about their job and seek a future there,
