    Pros

    Paid on salary & compensated for OT. Do not have to worry about what you will wear due to the uniform policy. Office is surprisingly relaxed compared to the culture that seems to be portrayed by other people.

    Cons

    Long distance to plant regardless of where you live. The performance reviews are extremely strict. Turnover rate at the company seems to be on the rise.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to put in place less strict office rules. The fact that office workers are not allowed to have coffee at their desk is a bit ridiculous.
