  1. "It's a good place to work in a very bad economy."

    Pros

    Steady employment with overtime available if wanted. Not a bad place to work. If you do your job and are to work on time management leaves you alone. Quarterly bonuses are something to look forward to.

    Cons

    1. Large Hispanic workforce. Very nice people to work with but they will speak Spanish every chance they get. It's very hard to learn a job from someone that has a poor command of the english language. Just from a safety standpoint management should make english the only language to be spoken in the factory.
    2. G&Ws starting pay is VERY low. The company is clearly taking advantage of the bad economy and the large unemployed workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Please address number 1 and number 2 above. If the economy improves after the next presidential election (as I believe it will) you will lose a lot of good employees looking for better wages and benefits. Quarterly bonuses are nice but they don't make up for the low wages.

    Pros

    Endless things to do, never sitting idle. Quarterly bonuses are excellent, 401k matching is optimal, and the people that you meet and work with are all unique in their own ways.

    Cons

    Management needs to improve and more employees need to be hired for the massive backlog of orders going through the company. The company has grown beyond it's original facility and to this date is still growing. Lack of experienced seniors in the company makes it hard for the new hires to adapt to the company's culture. Occasionally you are required to cross-function other department's roles without notice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your Design Engineers free from distraction of other departments so they can release quality designs for both customer and error free manufacturing.
