    I have been working at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    4O1K√ Insurance√ both of those are decent. Hourly rate is OK. Paid vacation and holidays. One unique perk your birthday is considered a holiday, you can either take the day off with pay or work for double time pay rate.

    Cons

    Hourly rate is $1.50 - $2.00 lower than a competitive rate should be. Attendance policy is as strict as the local prison. Must work 7 years to have 3 weeks of vacation. Most employers of equal size require 5 years of service for 3 weeks vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with each other and with the employees. COMMUNICATION

    I have been working at Flex-N-Gate full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great management. A company that is truly growing in LED lighting technology from rear lighting to front lighting. It is looking toward the future and hiring top talent to make the organization succeed.

    Cons

    Some of the structure and organization seems disorganized and processes are lacking. Some of the organization is a start up which is exciting, specifically in the electronics arena.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow in areas of process and hiring the right people. I am personally satisfied working here and it has been a blessing to me and my family.

    Pros

    Clean environment, fair workplace practices

    Cons

    difficult to achieve progressive growth

    Advice to Management

    Working on the production floor, there could be a better sense of authentic teamwork. There seems to be an undercurrent of division, almost like the haves and the have nots.

    Pros

    The Belvidere location is a union shop so the benefits and wages are comparable to local companies.

    This corporation likes to run extremely lean so there are not many opportunities to advance.

    Pros

    Alot of experience to be gained but that is about it you will always be picking up the slack of management

    Cons

    Work Life Balance unannounced overtime poor pay for hard work management does not have a clue

    Advice to Management

    To restructure from the top down and maybe you could have happier and better employees but until then you will still have the bottom of the barrel
