    I have been working at Harvey Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    very good insurance, decent vacation time, profit sharing that hardly any company have nowadays are definitely great plus.

    Cons

    if you are on a production floor no one is interested in developing your potential, or ever give you opportunity to try a new role. no one will listen to your ideas and process improvements, so don't even waste your time. rules are sometimes absurd: we have 10 min coffee breaks after 2 hours of work, there are coffeemakers and coffee provided, but by the time you make it 10 min are over and you have to go back to work, so you don't have time to drink it. managers will not make coffee for workers and will not allow one person go 5 min earlier , not to lose 5 min of time they could be working

    Advice to Management

    production employees are the ones who knows the process the best and their ideas can save company big bucks. Just give them a chance to speak, listen to what they have to say.

    I have been working at Harvey Industries full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits including medical, dental, and vision. Nice co workers. Annual raises. Steady 40 hours a week. The work is easy to learn. opportunity to be promoted to better jobs if qualified.

    Cons

    It's physical work. Like any workplace there can be a few bad actors that take advantage co workers by letting us pick up the slack. no flexibility in job schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always fall for the lip service, observe the slackers aND hold them accountable. it is demotivating when employees are able to slack off all the time with no consequences.
