    Pros

    The only reason to work here is pay and vacation time. That's why they get 2 stars instead of 1.

    Cons

    Management has no idea how to treat people with any respect. They act like the workers are scum. They think they are the greatest thing on earth. It's a joke, if the workers were half as bad as management acts, the company would have closed up years ago. Just about everyone there hates the place. If your looking for a miserable place where you get bullied around, and get treated like a 2nd class citizen, you found it!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue, the workers are the ones that make the company money. Management just steals money from the company! Come out on the floor and talk to people. You don't have to treat people like crap. Most of your management should be fired for how they treat people and how they talk down to people. They hide behind thier authority and get away with it. That's why you have to hire armed security every time you get rid of someone. The company wouldn't have to worry about people coming back to harm them if you didn't treat them like you do.

    Pros

    Consistently developing new technologies and materials. GTC is focused on the high-end applications typically seen as capability-limiting by its customers.

    Cons

    They sometimes lose sight that the "regular" applications provide good residual income and can finance the R&D efforts towards the "technologically advanced" product development.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and evaluate what is needed by the marketplace. VOC should be the major factor in driving innovation.

    Pros

    Benefits, Global sites, Vacation time, Lean Six Sigma programs, Sales team

    Cons

    Pay, Career advancement structure, management, Union

    Advice to Management

    Change the culture of HR running the business. People don't quit jobs. They quit managers. This cannot be more true. Promote the people who have demonstrated good, sound management skills. Managers forcing employees to carry out their objectives without getting buy-in from their own team is not conducive to a work environment. It just drives employees to be resentful and less effective. Encourage employees to have confidential conversations with HR about what is going well and what is not going well - not just what is going well. Hold the plant manager accountable to his own promises and metrics. There is too much "fluff" being passed around and fudging of numbers to look good for Executive Management. Ask the hard questions and really understand what's going on. You'd be surprised what you will find when you ask why more than two times.
