        Pros

        Steady company if you are just looking for a job.

        Cons

        The company is not bad, per se, but there has been a lot of transition over the last 18-24 months. US division is being sold after recent growth acquisition. There is not much in the way of advancement. Employee cost of benefits is very high.

        Pros

        The pay, although you will work 6 days and have no time to spend it

        Cons

        Any idea you may have to improve anything will be ignored. People are treated like things , common sense is very rare. They rarely have parts to fix their aging machines. They also use an army of indifferent temps

        Advice to Management

        Listen to your people ( work force) they are ultimately the ones who make the money
