      Company Headed In The Right Direction

      Pros

      - Great Brand - Great History - Positive Momentum Toward The Future - Re-Establishing Roots and Worthy Product Lines - The toxic culture of the past is changing as stronger leadership is joining and placing focus on supporting its employees. - Opportunities for further financial growth of the business are endless. - Plenty of low hanging fruit. - Was not planning to leave, just had a better opportunity arise.

      Cons

      The only con is that change is a long process, it is not overnight. There are many battles that still need to be fought in getting this company to the pinnacle. However, the leadership in the company is stronger then it ever has been and is on the right track to success.

      Toxic

      Pros

      Great benefits, lots of overtime if you are looking to make money. Weekly payroll.

      Cons

      Toxic behaviors are allowed to happen by leads if they decide to single someone out. Lots of finger pointing and revolving door of employees due to such.

      Terrible Communication, Poor Upper Management

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great work culture, cool perks, decent bonus program.

      Cons

      Upper management has no concern for lower level employees. Communication between divisions is very bad. Policies and processes don't make any sense and present 101 hurdles to jump over. At large, the company doesn't seem to care about its customers. Team is terribly under-staffed. I don't recommend working for Gibson. Period.

      Run as fast as you can

      Pros

      Opportunity to learn different machines or manufacturing process.

      Cons

      The management doesn't care one bit about the hard working people, they only care about themselves. They don't listen and they expect you to work on average 50-60 hours. Work life balance is severely lacking. Starting pay is that the low end of the scale compared to other companies within the same job category. There are way better companies don't waste your time!
